The artwork of 64 Dallas-area high school students is being featured at Dallas Museum of Art Young Masters Exhibit.

Presented by the O’Donnell Foundation, the exhibition is now in its 20th year.

Selected by a panel of respected professionals from the arts and music fields, the 2018 exhibition features 64 original pieces chosen from 667 works submitted by AP Fine Arts students. The exhibition includes 54 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional works of art created by AP Studio Art students, four essays analyzing works of art in the DMA’s permanent collections by AP Art History students, and six four-minute original compositions by AP Music Theory students.

Schools represented in the exhibition are Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, Colleyville Heritage High School, Coppell High School, Creekview High School, Grapevine High School, Lovejoy High School, Plano East Senior High School, Plano Senior High School, Plano West Senior High School, and Richardson High School.

The exhibit runs through April 15.

The O’Donnell Foundation’s Advanced Placement Fine Arts Program was founded twenty-four years ago to motivate high school students’ interest and success in rigorous college-level fine arts courses, AP Art History, AP Studio Art, and AP Music Theory.

Since its founding in 1994, more than 20,500 arts and music students have benefited from the O’Donnell Foundation’s AP incentive programs. Last year, graduating seniors earned over $42 million in scholarships.
