The Natural Cycle of Art

Ironic that Dallas Independent School District, a system whose bureaucrats and politicians aren't exactly unfamiliar with the smoke-filled-room approach to doing business, would name a student art exhibition DISD:Transparency. Students from several high schools were given license to create installations in a variety of media focusing on the theme of transparency, however they interpret the term, with one caveat: The works must be created of recycled or recyclable materials and be disposed of immediately after the exhibition. Students have proposed taking their works back to their schools afterward, where their decomposition can be observed and documented by school science departments. Experience a fleeting moment of DISD transparency at DISD:Transparency 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, through June 26, in the lobby of the McKinney Avenue Contemporary, 3120 McKinney Ave. Call 214-953-1212 or visit for more information.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Starts: May 22. Continues through June 26, 2010
