Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is hosting its 2014 Annual Student Art Contest along with sponsors The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) and Dallas Contemporary.
Students from Kindergarten through 12th grade are encouraged to design a poster illustrating the theme "Off We Go!" and submit it before the 5 p.m. deadline on Tuesday, Feb. 18. Free 11x17 paper will be made available by DART and Dallas Contemporary on a first come, first served basis for any teachers who wish to participate with their class.
The Best of Show winner will have his or her artwork featured on select DART buses and receive a $1,000 cash prize from Dallas Contemporary, a non-collecting art museum presenting new and challenging exhibitions from regional, national and international artists. Other recognitions and prizes will be given to the 1st place, runners-up and honorable mention winners.
All winners' artwork will be exhibited April 5 through April 20 at the DMA which ranks among the leading art institutions in the country and is distinguished by its innovative exhibitions and groundbreaking educational programs.
