Because You Can't Spell DART Without "Art": Fair Park Station, Traveling Man Honored
Mark Ball, Dallas Area Rapid Transit spokesman, sends word this morning that Americans for the Arts has selected the 40 finest public-art installations, in the U.S. and Canada, that made their bow in '09. And the only two local works to make the list, out of 300 contenders culled through by artists Helen Lessick and Fred Wilson, are DART-commissioned projects: Brad and Diana Goldberg's Fair Park Station and Brad Oldham and Brandon Oldenburg's Traveling Man pieces in Deep Ellum.
Says Robert Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts, "We congratulate the artists and commissioning groups of the 10th annual Public Art Year in Review and look forward for honoring more great works in the decades to come." Hard to believe this failed to make the cut.
