The Texas Show started was launched in 2010 as the first Texas-wide design competition run by AIGA. This biennial design competition is comprised of a competition, awards ceremony, catalog, and traveling exhibit open to all design professionals and students living and working in the state of Texas. 2012 is a landmark year for The Texas Show: for the first time, we have been invited to take this traveling exhibit to AIGA’s National Design Center in New York City.

By recognizing stellar design in Texas, The Texas Show communicates the value of Texas designers to both the regional and national audience. Congrats to our Dallas winners for being selected for our traveling show. Take a look at the amazing work being produced in Texas as it makes its way to New York City.

The Traveling Exhibit will be open for viewing at the Tractorbeam gallery from Monday, July 9-15 with an opening reception at Tractorbeam on Saturday, July 7.
