The O’Donnell Foundation will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its Young Masters Exhibition on view February 24 - April 15, 2018 at the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA)in the Concourse Gallery. The exhibition features selected original works created by Advanced Placement® Studio Art, Art History, and Music Theory students from ten Dallas-area high schools participating in the O’Donnell Foundation’s AP Arts Incentive Program, including the following Coppell High School students:

Abigail Albright, Studio Art

Emily Elliott, Studio Art

Michael Gutierrez, Studio Art

Kimberly McDonald, Studio Art

Jingchun Quan, Studio Art

Karina Teruya, Studio Art

Bleu Wilson, Studio Art

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. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (BTWHSPVA), Colleyville Heritage High School, Coppell High School, Creekview High School, Grapevine High School, Lovejoy High School, Plano East Senior High School, Plano Senior High School, Plano West Senior High School, and Richardson High School.

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.
