Nadia Nesich, a 7th grade student at Pegasus School of Liberal Arts & Sciences in Dallas, is this year's Best of Show winner in DART's annual Student Art Contest.
Nadia's artwork, based on this year's theme "DART's New Bus Network: Simpler. Better. Faster. Easier!", asked young artists where they would like to go. Students from kindergarten through 12th grade were given the opportunity to show everyone how far DART's new bus network can take them.
The 2022 DART Student Art Contest helps promote the use of public transportation and is supported by community partners including Dallas Contemporary, the Dallas Museum of Art, Half Price Books, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, the Dallas Zoo, the Children's Aquarium at Fair Park, and the Dallas Arboretum. Media partners were the Advocate, Al Día, The Dallas Morning News, DFW Child, KERA, Local Profile, NBC 5, Plano Magazine, and Telemundo 39.
Prizes also were awarded to first place winners and runners-up in different grade-level categories. The winning artworks will be seen at DART Rail stations, inside buses and trains, and also will be on display at the Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas Love Field airport, The Gallery at Courtyard Theater in downtown Plano, and on DART's website, DART.org
