Subjects of note in the 1980s include involvement with the Cultural Arts Council of Houston (CACH) including the Multi-Cultural Arts Committee, participation in the Texas Art Education Association, the Texas Art Education Association, and the Texas Institute for Arts in Education. Subjects of note in the 1990s include the writing and evaluation of the Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden brochure, involvement in the American Association of Museums (including a 1996 presentation by Education Director Beth Schneider), the artist in residence program at Houston Independent School District (HISD), and participation in the National Art Education Association programs and conferences including the 1995 Annual Conference in Houston. The grant files subseries reflects the involvement of education staff in the grant writing process, however additional information may be found in the files of the development office. Of special interest is the documentation of the Lila Wallace: A Place for All People project, an attempt to make the museum a central to the lives of all people in the Houston area. Special attempts were made through this project to bring the world of art to an underserved population, as documented here. In addition, these files record the activities of education staff in assisting other institutions in the grant writing and evaluation process.
