A Year on The Plaza Art Competition
The Catholic Foundation's 50th Year Anniversary gift to the people of Dallas is an open-air plaza in the new Dallas Arts District across from the Meyerson Symphony Center, and adjacent to the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Each fall a new piece of art is installed in this unique urban oasis following a rigorous competition among local artists.
