The Southlake Arts Council has recommended an abstract sculpture by Arkansas-based artist Hunter Brown to City Council to be placed at Park Village by late spring, early summer 2021.

The 15-foot stainless steel sculpture, called “Take Off,” will honor the site’s previous life as an airport and was first discussed in a joint workshop in January. The art installation will replace the fountain formerly in that spot.

According to the project proposal, the sculpture will “have great presence in the space and will become a place-making/iconic piece of art for the community.”

City Council is scheduled to consider the contract with the artist at their April 6 meeting.
