Brief Description

The committee would like to commission unique, imaginative, energetic artwork that is hopeful and looks to the possibilities of the future. The artwork should be a destination piece that connects the people who live nearby and use the park with nature and a sense of this place and its history. We hope to inspire the children, teenagers, and adults and ignite pride in the community.

The artwork should relate to the scale of the park, buildings, and live oak trees. Use of color and internal LED lighting could make the artwork sparkle and give a sense of play and wonder. It should be large enough to be seen by vehicular traffic but also enjoyed by park visitors. Artist should assume artwork will be touched, climbed and played on and must be durable and of permanent materials that will stand the test of time. Materials must be safe and easily maintained.
