"Traveling Man" artists Brad Oldham and Brandon Oldenburg got their first glimpses of their three finished sculptures through a train window yesterday, rolling into DART's new Deep Ellum Station on a Green Line test run.

This morning, they were good enough to send the above close-up of the largest piece, "Walking Tall," which is finished now at the corner of Good-Latimer and Swiss Avenues, along with the other two pieces nearby, "Waiting On A Train" and "Awakening."

The Traveling Man's no stranger to Unfair Park, and the construction's been well documented in DART time lapse videos, but we're including a few more shots courtesy of the Traveling Man's friends at Reel FX.

First up after the jump, though, a slice of video from yesterday's Green Line run, in which Oldenburg makes a brief appearance chatting up DART's Randall Chrisman.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
