2018 Distinguished Alumnus: Gabriel Dawe MFA’11
Gabriel Dawe MFA’11 will be honored with a UT Dallas distinguished alumni award during the annual Awards Gala in March.
Dawe uses thousands of strands of colored thread — sometimes as much as 80 miles worth — to craft different iterations of his Plexus series throughout the country.
He developed the series while completing his master’s of fine arts degree in arts and technology. His installations have been shown in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom — just to name a few. There’s also one on campus in the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History.
UT Dallas honors outstanding alumni and community leaders during the annual Awards Gala.
The 2018 gala will be held March 24 at the Davidson-Gundy Alumni Center.
