CCCCD Art Faculty Win Awards

December 17, 2002 - Collin County Community College District art professors Luke Sides and Rex Reece won awards for their entries into the Plano Mural Competition. In addition, their winning pieces will be on display on the ArtCentre Theatre for a period of up to three years.

Sponsored by the ArtCentre of Plano, the Plano Mural Competition invited local artists to submit artwork that will appear on buildings in downtown Plano. The theme was "Plano: Past, Present and Future." According to ArtCentre Executive Director Cliff Redd, "Downtown Plano is enjoying a rebirth and these murals will add color and excitement to the experience."

Distinguished judges for this competition included Plano Mayor Pat Evans; Mark Fleischer, artistic director of the Plano Repetory Theatre; Patricia B. Meadows, curator of Hall Office Park; Joa Muns, president of the Junior League of Plano; Robbie Robinson, chairman of the Arts of Collin County; and Deputy Mayor Protem Steve Stovall.
