TomIssac Mark, Studio Art

Anna Fitzgerald, Music Theory

Selected by a panel of respected professionals from the arts and music fields, the 2018 exhibition features 64 original pieces chosen from 667 works submitted by AP Fine Arts students. The exhibition includes fifty-four 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional works of art created by AP Studio Art students, four essays analyzing works of art in the DMA’s permanent collections by AP Art History students, and six 4-minute original compositions by AP Music Theory students.  

Schools represented in the exhibition are Booker T.

A private reception and ceremony will be held on Tuesday, March 6, at the Dallas Museum of Art for participating students, their families, and teachers. 

The O’Donnell Foundation’s Advanced Placement Fine Arts Program was founded twenty-four years ago to motivate high school students’ interest and success in rigorous college-level fine arts courses, AP Art History, AP Studio Art, and AP Music Theory. In their mission to support schools as national models of excellence in fine arts education, the Foundation provides superior AP and Pre-AP training for program teachers. This year, 119 teachers and 1,790 students from 16 Dallas-area high schools participate in the program.

Based on the 2017 College Board AP fine arts qualifying exam results of a “3” or higher, the Foundation’s grant schools account for 16.5% of the state’s qualifying AP Fine Arts exams; 21% of the state’s qualifying AP Art History exams, 26% of the state’s qualifying AP Music Theory exams, and 12% of the state’s qualifying AP Studio Art exams. Six of the Program’s schools are included in the top ten state rankings for comprehensive AP Fine Arts schools (campuses that offer all three disciplines: AP Studio Art, AP Art History, and AP Music Theory). Eighty-eight percent of the Foundation’s AP Fine Arts students taking an AP Fine Arts exam in 2017 received a qualifying score.

Since its founding in 1994, more than 20,500 arts and music students have benefited from the O’Donnell Foundation’s AP incentive programs. Last year, graduating seniors earned over $42 million in scholarships.

Admission to the Young Masters exhibition in the DMA’s Concourse is included with free general admission. For more information, visit www.apstrategiesarts.org or www.DMA.org.

Community of Partners of Dallas (CPD) recognized Fidelity for their 20-year partnership collecting coats for abused and neglected kids in Dallas County. 

 

Fidelity’s “Coats for Kids” drive was started in 1997 as a small grass roots effort with a collection of 100 coats.  Since then each year has seen an increase in the coats collected – with 2500 collected annually since 2013.  This year, CPD distributed more than 3200 coats, with the largest percentage coming from Fidelity. 

 

“Fidelity is thrilled to partner with Community Partners of Dallas to provide coats for the children in the child protective services system in Dallas County.  For more than 20 years, this has been one of the highlights of our fall season— getting our 6,000 employees engaged to collect thousands of coats for a project that serves the children that most need our help.  It is a rallying cause for our associates and warms our hearts that we can help make their lives better in this small way.  CPD does amazing work for the kids and we are so proud to be one of their strong partners.”

 

Added Paige McDaniel, president and CEO of CPD, “We are so fortunate to have many long-standing partnerships for our annual drives.  What makes Fidelity’s support unique is that it is truly an employee-driven project.  What started with one individual rallying her co-workers, now extends to thousands who truly care about the kids we serve.  Thank you Fidelity for your dedication and commitment to ensuring abused and neglected kids in Dallas have warm coats each winter!”

 

About Community Partners of Dallas:   

Since 1989, Community Partners of Dallas has ensured safety and restored dignity and hope to abused and neglected children by providing crucial resources and support to the caseworkers of Dallas County Child Protective Services.  Community Partners of Dallas provides items such as winter coats, diapers and formula, holiday gifts, school uniforms, personal hygiene products, food and more, to send the abused children in our community the message that someone does care.  Please visit www.communitypartnersdallas.org for more information.

Added Paige McDaniel, president and CEO of CPD, “We are so fortunate to have many long-standing partnerships for our annual drives.  What makes Fidelity’s support unique is that it is truly an employee-driven project.  What started with one individual rallying her co-workers, now extends to thousands who truly care about the kids we serve.  Thank you Fidelity for your dedication and commitment to ensuring abused and neglected kids in Dallas have warm coats each winter!”

Bill Addy and Lydia Addy, Jubilee Park 20th Anniversary Gala co-chairs

Jubilee Park & Community Center celebrated its 20th anniversary with a sold-out birthday gala on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at the Omni Hotel in Downtown Dallas.

Chaired by Lydia and Bill Addy, the black-tie optional evening themed “Celebrate, Love, Dream,” began with a cocktail reception for the 780 guests in attendance.  Partygoers mingled as they enjoyed the signature “Jubilation Libation” cocktail with music by the Emerald City Jazz Trio.  Guests could also be seen viewing “History Hall,” lighted panels displayed around the room featuring highlights from Jubilee’s 20-year history, striking a pose in the MirMir photo booth, or purchasing raffle tickets for a chance to win a pair of 18 karat gold 5-drop earrings designed exclusively for Eiseman Jewels by designer Sloane Street.

At the appointed time, the ballroom doors opened to reveal the ballroom with a 20-foot birthday cake in the center of the room, surrounded by dining tables each featuring their own birthday cake as centerpieces.

As guests took their seats, master of ceremonies Tony Briggle welcomed all to the milestone celebration.  He then introduced Jubilee Park Cub Scout Troop #9007 led by DPD Officer Ray Hailey for a presentation of the colors and the Pledge of Allegiance. Jeff Rice, chairman of the Jubilee Park board of directors, followed to extend her welcome to attendees and added her gratitude for their support of Jubilee’s first-ever gala.  She introduced honorary co-chair, Reverend Mark Anschutz, for the invocation who before leading the crowd in prayer, recognized the many individuals in the room who helped launch Jubilee Park & Recreation Center and who continue to support it today. 

As partygoers enjoyed a first course of seasonal mixed greens with queso cotija, saffron-poached pear, and blue cheese vinaigrette, Mayor Mike Rawlings congratulated Jubilee on their special anniversary and applauded them for the important work they are doing in southeast Dallas.  He said, “Jubilee is a shining light for the city and for the rest of the country.”

Dinner of a Cabernet braised short rib with wild mushroom stuffing, roasted broccolini and red beets and baby carrots was served as co-chairs Lydia and Bill Addy took the stage to thank honorary chairs Peggy and Mark Anschutz, the Young Friends of Jubilee chaired by Elizabeth Hoffman and Paige Zapffe and the many individuals and organizations who helped make the evening possible. They gave special recognition to presenting sponsor ISN Software Corporation, as well as lead sponsors Crow Holdings and Park Place Dealerships. 

Emcee Tony Briggle returned and introduced a video, which highlighted the five pillars of Jubilee’s comprehensive community revitalization including education, affordable housing, public health, public safety and economic development.

As partygoers enjoyed “tuxedo” birthday cake with vanilla and fudge layers, Jubilee CEO Ben Leal took the stage and added his gratitude to all for making not only the evening possible but also for helping to provide the funds for a new Specialized Student Support (S3) Program for children with special learning needs.  The S3 program will combine teacher training, adaptive technology, specialized curriculum and parent empowerment to make high-quality education accessible to more families in Southeast Dallas. 

In closing, Leal shared the most exciting news of the night, the gala’s net revenue goal of $1 million to fund 8 years of the new program, had not only been met, but surpassed with a net total of nearly $1.6 million. He then invited all past, present and future leaders of Jubilee to the dance floor for a toast.

The dance floor quickly filled, as everyone raised a glass to Jubilee as they sang a round of Happy Birthday.  As cannons fired confetti into the air, the renowned Emerald City Band took the stage, and the After Party, sponsored by Crow Holdings and hosted by the Young Friends of Jubilee, officially began.

Partygoers of all ages then hit the dance floor or enjoyed the special games set up around the room, including a Putt-Putt challenge, Pin the Tail on the donkey and more.  As the photo booth continued, a magician made his way through the crowd to conjure smiles from the crowd. Late-night ticketholders joined the fun at 9pm—just in time to see some partygoers join the band on stage!  Chicken and waffle bites, Angus beef sliders, French-fry cones, and margherita flatbreads circulated through the throngs of dancers as a quieter ‘cake and coffee’ area was opened for guests to reconnect and re-charge.  As the evening came to a close, guests received a small box of custom cake balls made by Tart Bakery, compliments of valet sponsor Park Place Dealerships.
