Since 1989, WITS has brought Houston school children to the Menil Collection where, through writing about the artworks they encounter, the students are awakened to the power of their own voices. Students are chosen through a juried competition to be published in the Watchful Eye anthology and to read their work at the Menil Collection at the end of the school year.
