Thirty pieces of student artwork – all depicting the theme, "Oh the Places DART Goes" – are on display in the lobby of Plano’s Courtyard Theater through Aug. 6. The space, known as the Gallery @ Courtyard
, serves as a resource for local DFW artists to proudly exhibit their creative work.
This is the first year that DART has displayed the student artworks at the Courtyard Theater. The exhibit is the last stop of a tour that has included art exhibitions at the Dallas Museum of Art and Dallas Love Field.
Doreen Chen, the Best of Show winner, is from Jasper High School. This is the second consecutive year that a Plano ISD student has won Best of Show.
The National Association of Government Communicators recently recognized the DART Student Art Contest for its excellence in the category of K-12 Education Programs as part of its annual Blue Pencil/Gold Screen Awards.
The Courtyard Theater, a city of Plano facility, is located at 1509 H Avenue, in the Downtown Plano Arts District
, across Haggard Park from Downtown Plano Station
on the Red and Orange lines.
