MLK, Dolores Huerta, Cesar Chavez, and Farm Workers

Columbia Heights wants Texans to think about equal rights. The Institute of Texan Cultures has partnered with students from Columbia Heights Elementary School, San Antonio, TX to bring two special exhibits to the museum this spring.

February 15, 2016 - June 5, 2016


Student Produced Exhibits

Student Produced Exhibits feature the work of K-12 students from across the state. With the supervision of the Education and Interpretation Department, classroom teachers, and other experts, students are challenged to examine what defines Texan culture today and provided a platform to share their stories and perspectives.

Current Student Exhibit

Perceptions of Texas

February 24, 2017 - May 28, 2017
The UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures will partner with the Ayusa Global Exchange international student program for a new exhibit. High school-level students participating in Ayusa Global Exchange will use a variety of media to express their perceptions of Texas before and during their time here.

From culture shock, to favorite customs, to differences in schooling across the world, Ayusa students will share what they learned and what surprised them about Texas.

To offer a counterpoint to the exchange students’ artworks, each international student is paired with a Texas student at their host high school, who will share what they learned from their Ayusa partners.
