“Through the eyes of our children-Something beautiful”

31 05 2009

“Through the Eyes of Our Children presents photographs made by students from five schools in the South Dallas/Fair Park area of the Dallas Independent School District. Inspired to follow personal journeys of discovery through their photographs, these students convey their perceptions and ideas about the neighborhoods—and even the broader community—in which they live.”
The Dallas Museum of Art is on the right track cultivating art, creativity and personal perspective in its children. This exhibit runs from June 1-August 23, 2009 on the second Mezzanine it is definitely worth supporting.
