Eat a Peach: Mitchell Rasansky's Favorite Public Art Piece Set For September 30 Bow
|Art Garcia's Farmers Market Shed No. 2 Peaches, set to debut by month's end|
Turns out, those peaches are finally ripe: Yesterday afternoon, I noticed that the city's Public Art Committee was meeting at City Hall, and, per the agenda, the peaches will take root on September 30. I asked Kay Kallos -- the former director of the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center who's now Dallas's Public Art Program Manager -- if we could take a sneak peek at the finished product. She has some work-in-progress photos, but artist Art Garcia -- the visual designer also working on the Bishop Arts Public Art Project -- didn't think them ready for public consumption, so Kallos sent along this conceptual rendering instead. Incidentally, if you want a preview of the other public art being prepped -- including the Main Street Garden Shelter being designed by Leni Schwendinger and set to make its official bow November 5 -- that's but a click away.
