"Migration I" by Pascale Pryor

“Migration I” by Pascale Pryor

Oak Cliff-based artist Pascale Pryor won second place in the 2013 Art on Henderson contest. She is one of seven artists whose work was selected to be displayed along North Henderson in East Dallas for two years.

Of those works, hers was selected for a $2,500 prize. Pryor’s sculpture, titled “Migration I,” is made of colored plexiglass and painted steel.

Pryor is from France and moved to Dallas in the 1980s. She says she is drawn to the patterns of butterfly wings because they represent “the drive and faith required to migrate for any species, including my own.”

“I love the idea of Art on Henderson,” she says. “It is such a great concept that would be wonderful to duplicate in Oak Cliff.”
