Since 1995, the O’Donnell Foundation and the Dallas Museum of Art have generously sponsored the Young Masters Exhibition. The Young Masters Fine Arts Exhibition celebrates the creativity and skill of each grant program: AP Art History, Music Theory and Studio Art. Integrating all three disciplines at this prestigious event reinforces both the interconnectedness of the arts and the mission of the O’Donnell Foundation’s incentive program, Create Schools of Excellence in Fine Arts Education.
All CSEFA registered high school students who are currently enrolled (2013-14) or who were formerly enrolled (2011-13) in the grant and passed the AP fine arts exam are invited to submit the following works for exhibit:
- AP Art History – an original essay in response to a work in the DMA’s permanent collection
- AP Music Theory – an original four minute composition
- AP Studio Art – an original two-dimensional or three-dimensional art work
