Home>GeT Art: A Student Exhibition Featuring works from Brewster School and San Isidro School

GeT Art: A Student exhibition featuring works from Brewster School and San Isidro School will be on view at the International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) Saturday, June 11, through Sunday, June 25, 2022.

The Guadalupe el Torrero (GeT) Foundation is honored to collaborate with the IMAS to present the artwork of students from Brewster School and San Isidro School. Middle school students from Brewster and San Isidro submitted artworks for the inaugural GeT Foundation Art Contest. The goals of this contest focused on encouraging students to produce art and connect with their creativity at school through drawing, photography, painting, and digital art. Students in this exhibition represent images of the flora and fauna in their rural communities, explorations of portraiture, the complexity of identity, pop art and contemporary culture, and architecture of the Rio Grande Valley.

The Guadalupe el Torrero (GeT) Foundation promotes the arts and education along the borderland of South Texas and Mexico to foster collaborations between the arts and sciences to connect artists, students, and our community with the world.

The purpose of these GeT Art Contest awards are to support education and advancing the creative works of students, artists, and their teachers working on studies related to the arts and sciences. These awards encourage students to pursue their passion in the arts, because their success aligns with the mission statement of the GeT Foundation.
