Richland College will be participating in the Texas Biennial for 2011.  This year the curator, Virginia Rutledge, has asked several arts organizations and institutions to encourage Texas arts during the Spring art events. This movement to emphasize the arts throughout the state is a great gesture in which we are happy to be included.
