Stevie Ray & Jimmie Vaughan Public Art Tribute Approved – Call for entry Coming


The Dallas Park Board has approved a contract with the Oak Cliff Foundation confirming contributions of $68,000 for a new public art installation honoring Dallas natives and world-renowned blues musicians, Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan to stand at Kiest Park in Oak Cliff, near the brothers’ childhood home. The move came just two days before Saturday’s induction of the late Stevie Ray Vaughan and his band Double Trouble into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cincinnati, OH. A call for artists will be issued this summer.

“We are pleased to be able to develop a public art commission to honor the lives and contributions of Dallas’ own Vaughan Brothers,” says Office of Cultural Affairs Interim Director, David Fisher. “Placing the work at Kiest Park, near their childhood home, is exactly the right location.”

The project will honor the Vaughan Brothers as important contributors to the history and culture of Dallas. The sibling blues guitarists Jimmie Vaughan (born in 1951) and Stevie Ray Vaughan (1954-1990) were born and raised in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas. They began playing guitar during their childhood and by their mid-teens were semi-professional musicians. The brothers relocated to Austin in the mid-1970s, forming individual bands that influenced the blues revival of the 1980s. Stevie Ray Vaughan was killed in a helicopter crash in August of 1990.

“The Dallas Park Board enthusiastically supported moving ahead with the contract for the Oak Cliff Foundation to contribute partial funding for the project,” says Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Manager, Kay Kallos. “I think everyone felt this kind of recognition in Dallas is long overdue.”

The total project budget of $142,000 includes $74,000 from the 2006 Bond Program for public art projects in parks and $68,000 from the Oak Cliff Foundation. Of that, $87,200 will be allocated for the artwork, $40,000 for maintenance and $14,800 for administrative costs.

Oak Foundation Board Member, Kirby Warnock helped move the project forward. “We’re pleased the Oak Cliff Foundation could help bring this project to fruition,” says Warnock. “Now we’re calling on the public to join the campaign.” Donations to the Vaughan Brothers Art Project can be made online at http://vaughanbrosart.com/donate/
