Young Masters Exhibition
Since 1995, the O’Donnell Foundation and the Dallas Museum of Art have generously sponsored the Young Masters exhibition. The Young Masters Fine Arts AP fine arts exhibition celebrates the knowledge and creativity of each grant program: AP Art History, Music Theory and Studio Art. Integrating all three disciplines at this prestigious event reflects the mission of ODF to support schools of excellence in fine arts.
