Sarah Thigpen, a ninth grader from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, in Dallas ISD, took home Best of Show at DART’s 2019 Student Art Contest reception at the Dallas Museum of Art April 4.

With the theme “My Next Stop Is ___,” 894 kindergarten through twelfth-grade students from 133 schools and organizations participated in DART’s 2019 Student Art Contest to help promote the use of public transportation.

DART held a reception at the Dallas Museum of Art April 4 to honor the student winners. You can find the winners’ artwork on display at the museum through April 28.

Sarah Thigpen, a ninth grader from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, in Dallas ISD, took home Best of Show and received a $1,000 cash prize from Dallas Contemporary.

Over the next year, a DART bus will display Thigpen’s winning piece as it travels throughout the agency’s 13-city service area. The bus is the first ever to be wrapped completely highlighting the art competition.

Check out a few scenes from the reception:
