Lay’s & Doritos brand executives will celebrate their Black History Month Art Contest winner Theo Ponchaveli at an artist reception on Thursday, September 29th, from 6:00pm-9:00pm at South Side on Lamar.

Theo Ponchaveli is a self taught painter and visionary who found his passion for oil painting on canvas just five years prior to entering the art competition hosted by the Lay’s & Doritos brands and benefitting The United Negro College Fund. Artists from across the nation submitted artwork, and the contest website logged more than 50,000 votes.

At the end of the competition, Theo Ponchaveli was declared the Grand Prize Winner and Lay’s & Doritos donated $35,000 to UNCF. This exhibit will embody icons from history, art, old Hollywood, music and people who have exemplified Theo’s life motto of “By Any Means Necessary.”


“The Lay’s & Doritos Art Contest allowed over 300 people to showcase their artistic talents in celebration of Black History Month,” said Linda Bethea, senior director, Marketing, Frito-Lay North America. “Congratulations to Theo Ponchaveli on his winning submission. We are excited to host a gallery show to display this inspirational artwork in his hometown of Dallas.”

“UNCF is grateful for our partnership with Frito Lay and their generous investment in our students. Their support is helping many underserved youth attend college and gain the skills and knowledge necessary for successful careers” said Diane Stephenson, Area Director UNCF.

Lay’s and Doritos will celebrate artist Theo Ponchaveli and his work at The Janette Kennedy Gallery at South Side on Lamar. Guests will enjoy acoustic guitar, refreshments by Pepsi, Buffalo Trace Whiskey cocktails, hors d’oeuvres by The Cedars Social, and complimentary valet parking. Admission is FREE to the public.
