"Saint Peter's Fish" Wins Annual Art Competition

We celebrated our “A Year On The Plaza” art dedication and unveiling Oct. 16 in the heart of the Dallas Arts District.

Congratulations to North Texan Kimberley Peterson, our 2019 art competition winner for her piece "Saint Peter's Fish" that will be on display for one year at The Catholic Foundation Plaza in the Dallas Arts District.

Honorable mention status was awarded to Zahra Jahanyfard for “Dreams Without Borders,” Kay Wyne for “Imagine,” and Kathy Elliott for “Embracing Differences.”

The 28 x 9 foot public wall featuring the winning entry, and small renderings of past winners is located between the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center and the Cathedral Santuario de Guadalupe at the corner of Crockett and Flora St. in the heart of the Dallas Arts District.

You can watch our Facebook Live dedication and blessing, that involved Father Stephen Bierschenk, rector and senior pastor at the Cathedral, on our Facebook page at The Catholic Foundation, @CatholicFnd.

In describing her artwork, Kimberley said she wanted to remind individuals that they can be both physically present, as well as spiritually present, which is “where the miracles happen.”

The Catholic Foundation Plaza was dedicated in 2006, and was a gift from The Catholic Foundation to the Dallas community to commemorate the Foundation’s 50th anniversary.
