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

Little Texan, Big World

June 24, 2017 - October 31, 2017
The UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures will partner with the City of San Antonio's Parks and Recreation Department for a new exhibit. Participants ages six to seventeen will create artwork that will focus on how they view themselves as Texans and how they see themselves in relation to the rest of the world. The youth will explore their identities through an examination of cultural and oscial expreriences as well as family history.

The exhibit will showcase a variety of media including poetry, short stories, visual arts, photography and short films. It will be on display from June until October 2017.
