Emily Holman Morris’ winning piece, “Windows to the City,” will adorn the 28-by-9-foot public art wall in The Catholic Foundation Plaza across from the Meyerson for an entire year.
The artwork celebrates not only the Cathedral’s architecture, but also the city of Dallas and its attractions. Before being selected as the winner, Holman Morris’ piece, along with submissions by other Texas professional artists, was reviewed by a panel of highly respected members of the local arts community.
