Call for Sculptures for Phase Four Complete

Wednesday, 09 August 2017 00:00

Over the course of the last month Arlington Parks and Recreation Department has been accepting submissions for Phase 4 of the Entertainment District Sculpture Trail at Richard Greene Linear Park.

During that time, over 100 applications and sculpture concepts were received. Submissions were open to professional, amateur, and student entries, including both freestanding and interactive sculptures.

A subcommittee of the Entertainment District Sculpture Trail Steering Committee will be going through the applications received and evaluating each entry. Evaluations will consider, but are not limited to, suitability for the location, sculpture materials, cost and uniqueness of the piece. 

A total of 1-3 sculptures will be selected from these entries. Evaluations are anticipated to be complete by the end of August with placement of sculptures as early as this coming fall.

A lot of activity is taking place within the Entertainment District in Arlington outside of Football and Baseball. Six Flags Over Texas and Hurricane Harbor are wrapping up their summer season and construction of "Texas Live" and the new Rangers ballpark is taking place immediately adjacent to the sculpture trail.

"With all the excitement going on in Arlington, these sculptures are sure to get great visibility in the coming years,” stated Gary Packan, Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation. 

A total of 19 sculptures have already been placed within both Richard Greene and Dr. Robert Cluck Linear Parks. For more information on the trail visit naturallyfun.org/sculpturetrail.
