LANDMARK ARTS promotes fine arts growth and development at Texas Tech School of Art through a comprehensive program of exhibitions, symposia and workshops, publications, and hands-on experience with working artists. As a component of the Texas Tech University School of Art, the strength of the program is in the integration of academic, professional, and real-world experience afforded by its broad association with the University and the Lubbock Community of arts supporters.

Landmark Arts exhibitions and speaker programs in the Texas Tech University School of Art are made possible in part with a generous grant from the Helen Jones Foundation of Lubbock. Additionally, we thank the J.T. and Margaret Talkington College of Visual and Performing Arts for the support provided for programs in the School of Art.
