Three months ago we were introduced to Brad Oldham and Brandon Oldenburg's Traveling Man sculptures, which will greet Dallas Area Rapid Transit light-rail riders as they enter Deep Ellum in coming days -- Green Line media ridealong is Tuesday, as a matter of fact, in advance of the "Super Saturday" public preview on September 12. (More details on that Tuesday, we've been told.) So those who haven't been down to Deep Ellum in a little while might not have seen this big fella, whose construction DART's been documenting and who posed for this photo taken by Angela Hunt Wednesday evening.
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.
