In support of Historical Preservation Month, an observance held in May to promote historic preservation, the Fort Bend County Historic Courthouse Rotunda is currently hosting an exhibit featuring artwork from contests held in Fort Bend County. The Fort Bend County Preserved fine arts entries depict local sites throughout Fort Bend County via painting and drawing mediums. The Rosenberg Architectural Appreciation photography entries feature various architectural subjects artistically captured with a camera lens. The purpose of the contests was to draw public attention to the importance of preserving and protecting our community’s history and architectural assets by restoring our older buildings. Sue Syvertson with the Art League of Fort Bend and Dan Kelleher, Main Street Manager with the City of Rosenberg, coordinated the contests and installed the exhibit. The contests were co-sponsored by the Fort Bend County Historical Commission, the Art League of Fort Bend, BAC Photography and Design and the Rosenberg Main Street Program. The exhibit is open to the public and will run through June 29, 2018.
Judge Bob Hebert said, “The preservation of history provides a foundation on which communities may intelligently build their future.”
