The Texas state YAM Exhibit is a once in a lifetime opportunity for your art students. Each county in the state is asked to submit a couple of pieces of artwork to represent the county. This artwork is selected by a panel of art teachers in each county and must be created by students of current MISD members.
The 2014 State YAM Exhibit will be held from March 1st to March 25th at the McAllen Creative Incubator. Over 100 pieces of McAllen students artwork will be on display from every county in the state!
