Calling all lovers of the arts. SPARK! just opened a new interactive art installation built exclusively by local high school students at 1409 Botham Jean Blvd., Ste. 004. The exhibit, known as “Prismatic,” is about the expression of art and media through bright and captivating colors.

Students who built the abstract art pieces teamed up with arts and entertainment company Meow Wolf to create a Dallas-area location that would engage kids and families during the day and adults during the late evening.

When you venture through the gallery, you’ll find each room decorated with a single color and theme.
