The Tomball Community Art Showcase features art from Tomball ISD and Lone Star College-Tomball students, as well as local artists in the Tomball area.

Tomball ISD, Lone Star College-Tomball and the Harris County Public Library have partnered to launch the Tomball Community Art Showcase, which will exhibit visual and performing artwork created by students from TISD and LSC-Tomball, as well as local artists from the Tomball area, according to a Feb. 28 news release. The artwork will be housed at the LSC-Tomball Community Library.

"We are so excited here at LSC-Tomball Community Library to bring this special collaborative initiative to our Tomball community," LSC-Tomball Community Library director Janna Hoglund said in an email. "[Our library] is a great place for such an initiative."

Library staff created exhibit areas throughout several common areas in the library, according to the news release. The grand opening will highlight select creative works by TISD art students with live entertainment from LSC-Tomball students.

“This is truly an extraordinary partnership that is indicative of the collaborative culture of the city of Tomball. We are committed to providing access and educational experiences that extend beyond the college campus and benefit the Tomball area community,” LSC-Tomball President Lee Ann Nutt said in the news release.


The showcase's grand opening celebration is scheduled for Thursday, March 21 from 5-7 p.m. at the LSC-Tomball Community Library, located at 30555 Hwy. 249, Tomball. Admission is free, and light refreshments will be provided.

"Art is a universal language of love and kindness; art unites, challenges and inspires," Hoglund said. "Do not underestimate the power of art—it brings communities together."
