Nadia Nesich, a 7th-grade student at Pegasus School of Liberal Arts & Sciences in Dallas, is this year’s Best of Show winner in Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s (DART) annual Student Art Contest.
Nadia’s artwork, based on this year’s theme “DART’s New Bus Network: Simpler. Better. Faster. Easier!” asked young artists where they would like to go. Students from Kindergarten through 12th grade were given the opportunity to show everyone how far DART’s new bus network can take them.
The 2022 DART Student Art Contest helps promote the use of public transportation and is supported by community partners including Dallas Contemporary, the Dallas Museum of Art, Half Price Books, the Perot Museum of Science, the Dallas Zoo, the Children’s Aquarium, and the Dallas Arboretum, as well as media partners the Advocate, Al Día, the Dallas Morning News, DFW Child, KERA, Local Profile, NBC 5, Plano Magazine and Telemundo 39.
The winning artwork will be displayed at DART rail stations, buses, and inside trains, and will also be on display at the Dallas Museum of Art, Love Field Airport, The Gallery at Courtyard in Plano, and on DART’s website, DART.org. Prizes will be awarded to first-place winners and runners-up in different grade-level categories.
