FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


14th Street Gallery in Plano Presents
JOURNEY: THE ART, MUSIC AND WORDS OF GRANT HALLIBURTON

PLANO – The collected creative works of a Dallas teen who died in November 2005 will be featured at 14th Street Gallery in Plano during the month of August.

The exhibit, entitled Journey, will feature the art, music and words of Grant Halliburton, a Dallas native who graduated from Plano West Senior High School in May 2005 and died six months later at the age of 19. In his short lifetime he produced a large volume of creative works, including hundreds of drawings, paintings and sketches; poetry and prose; and original musical compositions. More than 600 people attended the premiere exhibition of Journey in May.

The public is invited to the opening reception of Journey: The Art, Music and Words of Grant Halliburton on Saturday, August 5, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at 14th Street Gallery, located at 1412 14th Street in downtown Plano. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Halliburton began drawing and making music at an early age. His creative gifts flourished naturally and, by the time he was in high school, he was composing and recording music, performing in a band, and making his mark as an AP art student, Art Club president, AP Scholar and member of the National Art Honor Society. He was offered scholarships to a number of art
colleges and attended the University of Texas at Austin before his struggle with depression and bipolar disorder led to his death on November 2.
