The Art of Texas State Parks project is a visual arts survey and traveling exhibition of Texas State Park scenes to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Texas State Parks in 2023. The Art of Texas State Parks is intended to increase public awareness of Texas parklands and heighten their popular appeal through the elegant and inspired works of Texas' best contemporary painters.  Over the past several years, thirty contemporary artists across Texas were invited to participate in the project and to paint designated state park sites. These “Centennial Artists” were assigned specific state parks to paint; however, their stylistic preference, subject matter, and composition vary significantly at the discretion of the artist. From these submitted works, paintings were selected for inclusion in the upcoming book publication from Texas A&M University Press, the 2023 traveling museum exhibition (to be held at the Bullock Texas State History Museum, Austin; Houston Museum of Natural Science, and Witte Museum, San Antonio), and/or gallery exhibition and benefit sale at Foltz Fine Art in Summer 2022.  Out of the selected works, 30 paintings will be offered at a fixed-price sale this Summer through Foltz Fine Art as they host The Art of Texas State Parks Exhibition & Benefit Sale where twenty-five percent of the profits from the sale of the paintings will go to benefit Texas State Parks through a partnership with Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation, the official nonprofit partner of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
