Every year Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas presents a scholarship to an outstanding visual art student at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, and they recently announced this year’s recipient: Byron Otis, a graduating senior who will attend Washington University in St. Louis. The scholarship can be used by the student for any expense associated with his academic experience.
For info on CADD, Otis’ artist statement, and a look the young artist’s work (he makes paintings), go here.
