Atrium Gallery features high school art show: helping chart the landscape of tomorrow’s art scene

 

More than 350 entries were submitted for this year’s Atrium Gallery High School Art Show, featuring the talent, creativity and promise of young North Texas artists. The Atrium Gallery is a place where art meets science, and HSC is proud each year to showcase and applaud the work of students in our community. They are the future and influence of our environment in the next century.

Since 1985, the High School Art Competition has provided an extraordinary opportunity for talented 11th and 12th grade students throughout North Texas to exhibit their best works in mixed media, printmaking, photography, drawing, three-dimensional art, painting and computer design.

For some students, this is their only opportunity to compete with peers. Significantly, they will likely be not only the painters, potters and sculptors of the future, but also the designers of our clothes, cars, homes and lifestyles. Our environment will be enhanced by nurturing and encouraging these future artists.

Students in the following counties are eligible to enter this juried competition: Cooke, Denton, Erath, Hood, Johnson, Palo Pinto, Parker, Somervell, Tarrant and Wise.

The 2021 show has gone virtual during COVID-19. To see the winners and exciting work submitted this year, visit https://www.unthsc.edu/about-us/atrium-galery/gallery-schedule/.

Vaccine FAQs

Am I required to get a COVID-19 vaccine?
While highly recommended, COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory for HSC students, faculty or staff.

Should I receive the vaccine if I’ve already had COVID-19?
Due to the fact that COVID-19 re-infection is possible, people who have had COVID-19 should not be excluded from receiving the vaccine. However, if you currently have COVID-19, you should wait to be vaccinated until your illness has resolved and you can discontinue isolation.

Can a COVID-19 vaccine make me sick with COVID-19?
No. None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus that causes COVID-19 so a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19.

What should I expect after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine?
You may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building an immunity response. Common side effects include pain or swelling in the arm you received your vaccine, or fever, chills, tiredness or headache.

If you have pain or discomfort, talk to your doctor about taking a pain reliever such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

What is the benefit of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine?
COVID-19 can have serious, sometimes deadly complications, and there is no way to know how it will affect you. COVID-19 is also highly contagious, and could be spread to friends, family and others around you if you get sick.

Clinical trials show the COVID-19 vaccine to be highly effective, with the Moderna vaccine 94.1% effective at preventing lab-confirmed COVID-19 illness in people who received two doses who had no evidence of being previously infected.
