For the past six years, Texas Public Radio has approached a single local artist to craft the artist-designed t-shirt we offer as a premium to new and renewing members. 

The artist’s work is printed on 1000 TPR member shirts and is promoted online through social media and throughout our on-air fundraising campaigns.  TPR members who choose it as a premium item proudly wear the shirt around town. Past TPR t-shirt artists have included Chuck Ramirez, Katie Pell, Jennifer Khoshbin, Robert Rehm, Gary Sweeny and Ansen Seale.

As part of the city-wide Brahms Festival in 2013, Texas Public Radio invites members to TPR Presents: Brahms at 7 p.m. on  Tuesday, January 29, at Tripoint, 3233 N. St. Mary’s, Suite 102.

Positivity, health, and organization are common resolutions year after year. But what are the reasons behind them? And what do people hope to accomplish with each resolution?
