The Spring Break at the Bullock class series is paired with Art of Texas State Parks, a special exhibition that celebrates the Texas State Park System's 100-year history. In celebration of its centennial, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has commissioned Texan artists to paint scenes from their parks. Thirty artists were tasked with exploring and painting 65 parks, natural areas, and historic sites in the state park system. The selection of 34 paintings on view are as varied as the parks themselves and offer a snapshot of Texas's ecosystems and history.
