Limestone Quarry Park

Blackland Prairie
 

The concept for this project was to honor the remnant of the Blackland Prairie and Forest where the park is located. The mosaic imagery for this entry point reflects the patterns of prairie grasses. A “strea m” of grass was planted that grows from the entry point walls along the walkway leading to the center of the park. We worked closely with landscape architects, Halff Associates on this project to integrate the public art with the design of the park, determining locations and scope of the artwork.

 

18 inch squares on front / side mosaic 11 ft long

 

The playground site for the artwork faces Taychas Trail and the forest along West Rowlett Creek which wrap the back portion of the park.

 

 An additional third site is on a retaining wall along part of the trail where a series of mosaic images are placed that give a sense of looking up into the canopy of trees.

 

8 panels each 48 in x  24 in

Blackland Forest

 

 

Mosaic imagery at this location is in two suites of four panels each and mirrors the forest providing viewers with “windows” into the forest. This suite is located on the southeast side of the play area.

An additional third site is on a retaining wall along part of the trail where a series of mosaic images are placed that give a sense of looking up into the canopy of trees.
