One Arts Plaza Banner Installation features Booker T. Washington Visual Arts Students

One Arts Plaza has new artwork on display in the plaza... 

This amazing banner installation on display in the plaza  was created by students from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual  Arts.
Submissions were received from students in the visual arts program and three were chosen to have their artwork on display including juniors Brett Akop and Mary Woodward, and senior Samantha Smathers. While the decision was not easy, these students were selected for their vibrant illustrations, use of color and texture and overall talent as young emerging artists. 
“The students at Booker T Washington HSPVA represent the future of the arts and we are delighted to feature the artistic talents of these emerging young artists,” says Lucy Burns, Partner Billingsley Company. “As a building that anchors the Dallas Arts District, we take pride in providing visual and performing arts showcases in our plaza and lobby spaces that feature our community’s creative minds and future leaders. Our hope is that visitors to One Arts and the Arts District have an opportunity to share in this visual arts experience,” says Burns. 
Brett Akop is a junior and plans to apply to The Pratt Institute, Rhode Island School of Design, and the School of Visual Arts in New York. Upon graduation he will pursue a career in illustration and graphic arts & design. Brett’s piece is titled Stained Glass Self Portrait. 
Samantha Smathers is in her senior year with plans to attend college next fall studying sociology and fine arts. Her piece titled Cabbage Patch Byron features her friend Byron showcasing his love for the leafy vegetable, cabbage and her concern about the diets of teenagers.  In the future, Sam would like to take a global art history journey from the White Ziggurat in Iraq to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. 
Mary Woodward is a junior with collegiate plans to major in photography and minor in fashion studies. She will pursue a career in the photography industry creating her own designs and capturing life’s important moments. Mary’s piece titled Self Portrait. 
The banners will be on display until Spring 2015.
