Texas Cultural Trust Releases “Home is Where the Art is!” Coloring Pages
Created in response to COVID-19, Texas artists and luminaries including Mrs. Cecilia Abbott, First Lady of Texas; Ray Benson; and Stephen Harrigan are “Coloring the Art of Texas!”
WHAT: During these times, we have seen Texas’ heart through the kindness and support being offered by neighbors and organizations. We have also seen the power of the arts magnified as an emotional salve, a universal language, a reflection of current events, a form of expression, a unifying force, and a symbol of hope. In response, the Texas Cultural Trust invited Texas artists, luminaries, and organizations to create coloring pages for Home Is Where the Art Is!, an online collection of coloring sheets for people of all ages.
Coloring pages are now available to download for free on the Texas Cultural Trust website! Everyone is encouraged to share their finished work of art via social media by tagging the color page artist and Texas Cultural Trust using the hashtags #ArtCanTexas and #HomeiswheretheARTis.
Help the Trust highlight the creativity and compassion that we have seen during this pandemic and most of all have fun coloring!
The Trust plans to publish a coloring book of all the page submissions to raise funds to help the arts and culture sectors recover and rebuild post-COVID-19. Access to art and culture will continue to be essential as we heal, recover, and rebuild our local and global communities.
