Congratulations to the  2018 Mayor's Art Scholarship Recipients! ​ The fifth annual Mayor's Art Scholarship Reception was held in the Legacy Room of Houston's City Hall on April 11, 2018. Since 2014, the Houston Arts Partners coalition has partnered with the Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs and the Mayor's Office of Education to recognize outstanding student artwork on the themes of Neighborhoods, Identity, and Diversity. This year, 159 students from 17 public school districts and public charter systems participated. At the reception, Mayor Sylvester Turner met the awardees and gave remarks on the importance of arts education for all students. Eepi Chaad, the Youth and Community Outreach Coordinator at Art League Houston (a HAP partner organization) and one of the Mayor's Art Scholarship judges, and Wenden Sanders, Director of Fine Arts for Houston Independent School District, also spoke. Also in attendance were Councilmember Karla Cisneros, Chief of Police Art Acevedo, and Debbie McNulty, Director of the Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs.
