  2. Hi Ya’ll — Deborah is referring to the fact that arts organizations all across the state are again being invited to participate in the Biennial’s celebration of contemporary art in Texas by highlighting their own programming focused on Texas-produced art. In 2011, over 60 arts organizations participated, from the most established museums to alternative spaces run by art collectives. We’ve sent out a call for participation and would love for everyone to join! We are proud to be a part of a vibrant arts community and look forward to helping to increase awareness of the great work being done (artistically, and in terms of programming).

    You’ll find more information at our new website, http://www.texasbiennial.org, or email Anastasia Colombo, colombo [at] texasbiennial.org.

  3. Texas Artists — We’ve recently become aware that there is some expectation that the 2013 Texas Biennial Open Call for Art deadline will be extended. If you are still thinking about entering or want to encourage someone else to enter, please be aware that February 28 is the for-real, can’t be extended last day to get applications in. Details at texasbiennial.org. Thanks!
