DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF QUALIFICATIONS IS
AUGUST 13, 2010
Professional artists are invited to submit qualifications for consideration to create a site-specific artwork for Lake Highlands Town Center, a newly developed community at the northeast and southeast corners of Skillman Street and Walnut Hill Lane in Dallas.
Three artworks will be commissioned to be placed along the parkway area that borders the creek. Projects are independent of each other.
BACKGROUNDThe Lake Highlands Town Center development plan includes approximately 1.5 million square feet of residential space with a mix of apartment, condo and for-sale units); 283,000 square feet of retail; and 24,500 square feet of office space. The project will also include significant park land, hike/bike trails, and public spaces where public art will be located.
There are three high-profile hike and bike trail access points that will be considered for public art:
1) Amphitheater – This is highest profile point of access. It is the intersection of the hike and bike trail, the retail experience, the residential experience, and the outdoor stage/performance area of the park.
2) Whistle Stop Place – This point of access connects the sidewalk from DART light rail station to the hike and bike trail. This represents northern end of the hike and bike trail at Lake Highlands Town Center.
3) South lawn – This point of access connects to the large south lawn where residents will have access to picnics, kite flying, Frisbee toss, and games of tag.
