Brief Description

The new Raleigh Town Center development is currently under construction at Austin Peay Highway and Yale Road. The development will include a library facility with community gathering spaces, police precinct and Traffic Division offices, a one-mile walking trail around an 11 acre lake, and a skate park. UAC is partnering with the City of Memphis to produce a series of sculptures that encourages use of the walking trail and skate park. The selection committee expresses an interest in a public art piece that will: ● Encourage a sense of play and exploration of the outdoor amenities at the Town Center ● Reflect the history of the Raleigh natural springs ● Provide a gathering space for visitors to the Town Center ● Be durable, resistant to vandalism
