Woo Hoo, We’re MasterMinds Finalists!

Thanks so much to The Observer for naming La Reunion TX as a finalist in their 2011 MasterMinds competition! We’re honored that the work we’ve been doing and the progress we’ve made in the last year has put us in some pretty amazing company–10 finalists in all–who are doing innovative, ground-breaking work on the Dallas arts scene. The winners will be announced later this week, but join us this Saturday, December 3, at Artopia, where we’ll all be celebrating.

New Work On La Reunion TX Grounds | Art Chic@s!

One hundred fifty visitors came to the site on October 29 to view new work, created through the Art Chic@s program, by six artists and their 23 student apprentices. Bernardo Diaz’s Rascuachismo, Art Garcia’s Pencil Forest, Aralyn McGregor’s Slide, Lyndsey Rieple’s wearable jewelry, Emily Riggert’s Eternal Cycle, and Jennifer Sereno’s Nesting were all on display.

This was the first year of Art Chicos–although the fifth year of Art Chicas–and the boys provided a different kind of energy to the program as a whole. Art and Bernie were the perfect artists to initiate the program, working hard and bonding seriously with their teams. Here are photos from their workday by Allison V. Smith.

Dr. Elba Garcia, county commissioner for our district and the Honorary Chair of the event, toured the site, visiting with students and their families along the way.

So many people to thank for making such a beautiful day possible: sponsors, collaborators, volunteers, the event committee, and, of course, the artists and students. Thank you all for showing us the kind of impact LRTX has on individual lives and the community.
