Each year, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) hosts a Student Art Contest that is open to students at all grade levels throughout North Texas. It has grown to be one of the agency’s most popular Education Outreach events. This year, more than 150 schools and organizations submitted nearly 1,200 entries.
Students are challenged to illustrate an annual theme through lines, color and composition. Each young artist found his or her own way to illustrate this year’s theme: “Paint the town_____. Ride DART.” Participants completed the phrase with anything they could imagine. The students’ creations not only tell the DART story, but their own unique stories, and the story of a vibrant global metropolis that’s bursting with talent.
The Dallas Museum of Art has partnered with DART for the past eight years, and has displayed the winning entries. This year, we proudly present them virtually. Join DART and the DMA in celebrating the talent of our region’s young, culturally diverse artists.
