Alpine Art Colony
The Art Department began as the Department of Drawing and Domestic Arts in 1921 and became the Art Department by 1926. In 1932, the Art Department introduced an Art Colony for the summer sessions for both students and interested individuals. The Art Colony proved to be extremely successful, bringing some of the best regional artists to Sul Ross during the summer until 1950. The Sul Ross Art Colony was the longest running art colony in Texas.
