Calling all Artists: Environment Texas Art Contest


Environment Texas is hosting an art contest for our campaign: “Methane: UT’s dirty little secret.” The University of Texas is involved in the one of the largest oil and gas operations in America. The drilling operations pollute huge amounts of methane, which is harming our planet. UT doesn’t require companies who lease its land to use available technology to cut methane pollution. We’re calling on UT to require the companies that drill on UT owned land to cut methane emissions in half in the next five years.

To help get the word out about this important campaign we’re calling on artists! The art submissions must represent the purpose of the campaign which is to have UT reduce their dangerous methane emissions from fracking operations happening on UT owned lands. We will be accepting any medium of art, from photographs to sculptures, it’s up to you! All art will be displayed after the competition has ended. This is a unique opportunity to have your artwork displayed, and it’s for an important cause!

Deadline Nov. 30
