The Omni Hotel is one of the many parts of the Dallas skyline that light up the night sky thanks to a massive LED display on the building. Some nights the lights celebrate a Dallas sports victory, other nights it honors events coming to town, and sometimes it just displays beautiful light shows. However, starting this weekend it will have a new look as the LED display will be taken over by a number of UTD students as their artwork will be shown on the massive canvas.

16 students who are enrolled in the University of Texas at Dallas Projection Mapping Lab class will soon have their work proudly displayed for the entire metroplex to see. Their work, which uses computers and technology to create digital art and more, will be shown on the 23-story Omni Hotel Dallas LED display. "I always look for opportunities to take projects that we are doing in class and get them out into the community," said UT Dallas School of Arts, Humanities, and Technology associate professor Andrew F. Scott.

According to NBC DFW, the artwork will be shown starting April 16, and will rotate through the different student’s work until the end of the month. The project is called “Cosmic Trailblazing: Comet Artistry takes over Dallas Skyline.” Maybe the next great DFW artist will get their start with an Omni Hotel display.
