Future artist learning about the LRTX site and Found Object Art

Student-artists, teachers, parents, friends and the general public attended the Found Object Art opening at the Nasher on March 24.  Seven new pieces created by middle and high school art students from objects found at the LRTX site were on display.

Participating classrooms and students were recognized with gift cards and certificates. The classroom that created the piece judged to best meet the year’s goal of interpreting the theme “The Fluidity of Identity,” was awarded $500 toward art supplies! And the Nasher provided frozen yogurt and toppings for all.

Expansion of this very successful program is planned for next year. If you’re a DISD teacher and would like your classes to be involved, please be in touch!
