“We want to thank Dr. Stephen Duncan, Galveston Independent School District’s Director of Fine Arts, who took literally hundreds of picture in and around Moody Mansion, and shared them with students from all local schools, not just GISD. We’re also grateful for the help from Galveston’s art teachers, and for the panel of artists and architects who helped judge the competition.”
