The Honorable Michael S. Rawlings and Micki Rawlings are pleased to be the honorary chairs of the Dallas Education Foundation Annual Campaign 2021 and invite you to attend our Annual Campaign launch event, The HEART OF TEACHING, a celebration and recognition of our Dallas ISD art teachers and in partnership with Dallas ISD and Dallas Summer Musicals.

Every day, our Dallas ISD art educators, a majority of whom are working artists, share their gifts with our students and encourage, lift and enable them to do more than they thought possible. This juried art exhibition of 50+ pieces is open for viewing at the Music Hall at Fair Park until October 23. Admission is complimentary — though requires a valid ticket to the State Fair until the Fair closes on October 17th. The culmination of the exhibition is an evening of drinks and dessert event on October 25, 2021, in the Crystal Terrace at the Music Hall at Fair Park.

All artwork will be available for sale and all proceeds benefit the Dallas Education Foundation to support our mission of accelerating student success.

Together we power the future of Dallas
