The Catholic Foundation will announce the winner of the 6th Annual Catholic Foundation Plaza Artists Competition and unveil new larger-than-life artwork on the outdoor art wall during a dedication ceremony in the Dallas Arts District on Oct. 13, 2011.
The winning artist receives a $2,500 stipend, and the winning work will be displayed on a 28’ by 9’8” wall in The Catholic Foundation Plaza for approximately one year.
Texas professional artists were invited to submit proposal designs for consideration to be transferred to a vinyl-type surface which will be installed on the art wall. The artist and artwork are selected by a panel of highly respected members of the local arts community.
The Catholic Foundation Plaza, dedicated in October 2006, was a gift from The Catholic Foundation to the Dallas community to commemorate the Foundation’s 50th anniversary. In addition to the art wall, the 3,900-square-foot public space is an oasis for Dallas citizens and visitors to enjoy.
The event is free and open to the public.
