Over seventy students from South Dallas/Fair Park area schools will debut their visual and written pieces in the “Through the Eyes of Our Children – Something Beautiful” annual exhibition. The opening reception at the Dallas Museum of Art will be held on Tuesday, May 10, 2011 at 6:30 pm – 9:00pm. The exhibit will remain open through July 24, 2011.

The photography and mixed-media exhibit showcases the work of 4th and 5th grade students from Charles Rice Learning Center, H.S. Thompson Learning Center, and Martin Luther King Learning Center elementary schools who have participated in Preservation LINK’s Point of View photojournalism course (5th graders), and Visual Literacy Workshop (4th graders) media arts programs.

The guest speaker for the event is Annette Lawrence, Professor of Drawing and Painting at the University of North Texas, College of Arts and Design. Annette is a visual artist, whose work is widely exhibited and held in museums including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Dallas Museum of Art, The Rachofsky Collection, ArtPace Center for Contemporary Art, Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art, and American Airlines. She was recently commissioned for an installation titled Coin Toss at Cowboys Stadium.

The opening of “Through The Eyes of Our Children” will mark the beginning of a summer-long engagement for Preservation LINK student photographers. Through participation in DMA First Tuesdays, students will lead exhibition tours and give gallery talks discussing the inspiration behind their work with Museum visitors.  Preservation LINK, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit education agency that has impacted thousands of youth through its media and visual arts programs and many partners.
