Exhibit Overview

The UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures and Robert G. Cole High School have partnered to produce the museum’s next student exhibit. “San Antonio: Esta es mi Ciudad,” a celebration of San Antonio architecture, tourism, and history from both an artistic and photo-journalistic perspective.

Student photographers from Cole High School have lived all over the country, and even the world, as military children. These images feature the elements of our city that ring true to their vision of the spirit of San Antonio.

Robert G. Cole High School’s commercial and fine art photography programs are open to 9th-12th graders and designed to challenge students to rise to their academic and creative potential. Class content is based on journalistic and artistic principles with emphasis on real world application including publishing work, participating in contests and galleries, and commercial photography opportunities.

The Cole Photography Program was named the Rising Star of Texas program by the Association of Texas Photography Instructors in 2018, and since its inception in 2013, numerous student photographers have received local, state, and national awards for their work.
