About College Expo
500X Gallery, Texas’ oldest artist-run space, continues our annual juried show for college students!
Like the annual Expo juried show, 2017 College Expo aims to bring together artists from around the state. The exhibition offers college students an opportunity to enter into a dialogue with their Texas-based counterparts and to see work by their colleagues at other institutions. The exhibition will offer visitors an overview of the variety of perspectives that exist throughout colleges and universities in Texas.
