On Aug. 28, artist Wes Hardin began painting the district’s second mural on the exterior wall of Vickery Park. All three murals are to be inspired by historic photos of Plano that residents submitted to the Plano Mural Project.
Wes Hardin’s design represents a scene one would have found in downtown Plano in the early 1900s: citizens strolling in period dress, a Texas Electric Railway railcar and the train depot, and a delivery boy riding in a horse and buggy. The whole scene is set in front of a colorful Texas sunset.

DALLAS (Aug. 9, 2017) – Visitors to Victory Park may notice that the district seems a little more colorful than they remember, thanks to a new series of vibrant, geometric murals by local artist Lesli Marshall. The selfie-worthy works are the latest installment in Victory Park’s initiative to bring a renewed sense of energy and individuality to the district through public art.
“Victory Park is going through an amazing transformation, and the color and life in these murals reflect the new vibe of the area,” said Marshall. “It’s always exciting to stumble upon art in unexpected areas. In a parking garage, which is usually boring and industrial, people will discover these giant murals and interact with them.”
From goldfish swimming amongst diamonds to a mythical phoenix bird soaring over mountains, each new mural brings personality and a sense of discovery to an unexpected place: inside the parking garage on Victory Park Lane.
For inspiration, Marshall and her team members, Sarah Reyes and Daniel Driensky, looked to five adjectives – radiant, victorious, fierce, strong, and brave – and conceptualized five corresponding murals, each with its own animal and color scheme, painted in bold, bright strokes. Joining the “radiant” goldfish and “brave” phoenix, are “victorious” lions, a “fierce” steer, and “strong” elephants.
Splashed throughout the garage, with one on each level, the intention of the murals is twofold: to bring art into the district and to serve as a creative wayfinding mechanism.
“We could just paint numbers on each level like everywhere else does, but the new Victory Park isn’t like everywhere else,” said Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co. “Art is a powerful medium that can transform a space visually and impact how people experience a space emotionally. It’s one of the most important ways that we are adding texture, character, and soul to the district and fostering a vibe that is completely unique to Victory.”
The murals follow the unveiling of Victory Park’s first public art work this spring: an eight-foot steel sculpture in the “V-sign” hand gesture by California-based artist Nathan Mabry. The district will continue to roll out additional public art in the coming months, including a large sculpture by Las Vegas artist Tim Bavington, set to be installed this fall near the W Dallas – Victory Hotel.
The added public art comes as Victory Park owner Estein USA and retail partner Trademark Property Co. continue theirredevelopment efforts to evolve the district into a more authentic, walkable and soulful urban neighborhood.
In addition to the new public art, Victory Park transformation efforts include a full remerchandising, 85,000 square feet of new retail space, and key district enhancements to streets, sidewalks, storefronts, parking, technology and public spaces to promote a more vibrant, user-friendly experience.
Redevelopment efforts are also resulting in a number of new tenants, adding to the more than 20 retailers and restaurants that currently call Victory Park home. A curated collection of seven new local food and beverage tenants will open in the next year, including concepts from Tristan Simon, HG Sply Co.’s Elias Pope, This & That Concepts, Brooke Humphries, and Mesero. Other openings in the coming months include Orangetheory Fitness, Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas – Victory Park, and The 23, a new 285-unit mixed-use apartment community by LMC. Additional parking and a state-of-the-art valet program, as well as lighting and technology upgrades, will also roll out in 2017.

– Austin, Texas
OPEN DATE: 5/23/2016
Jury Fee: $35.00
Event Dates: 10/15/2016 – 10/16/2016
A small boutique Art Festival featuring 80 fine artists and contmporary craft artists along a beautiful retail and loft living street in the middle of The Domain in the affluent hi tech-corridor Northwest Austin. Art@The Domain in Austin is a great way to expand your Texas art sales in October. We welcome both the national traveling artist, regional artists as well as local Austin artists.
This juried 2 day art festival features fine art and contemporary craft in 14 media categories. Being the fifth year for the fall show and the ninth art show at The Domain; the word is out to art buyers and shoppers. Within The Domain are over 20 restaurants as well as Whole Foods and over 43,000 residents within the zipcode .
The Domain is Austin’s premier shopping and entertainment venue with more than one million square feet of restaurants and luxury retailers such as Barneys, Tiffany and Neiman Marcus surrounded in a beautifully landscaped setting. The Domain includes luxury apartments as well as a Westin hotel and Aloft Hotel. The Domain, is a massive mixed-use development with commercial, office and residential in a contemporary setting. The area was established 6 years ago and is growing rapidly.
Austin is also a major center for high-tech industries. Apple, Intel, Samsung, Hewlett-Packard and Google all have offices here. It’s eclectic and diverse and Austinites have a reputation for being supportive of the arts and of independent businesses.
Safety is imperative; durable, low-maintenance materials are recommended to withstand West Texas’ intense weather conditions.
Ideal submissions will create a mural that celebrates Industrial Engineering. The most distinctive aspect of this discipline is the flexibility it offers. Whether it’s shortening a rollercoaster line, streamlining an operating room, distributing products worldwide, or manufacturing superior automobiles, these challenges share the common goal of saving companies’ money and increasing efficiencies.
Industrial engineering studies the design and operation of production and service systems and the people who operate in these systems. Industrial engineers use the information and techniques from physical, mathematical, biological, behavioral, and engineering sciences to plan, control, design, and manage complex organizations and systems. Industrial engineering applies the laws of the physical sciences to designing and operating systems in which products are produced and services are provided, as well as to considering the behavior of people as they operate in these systems.
This art installation will not only serve as a beacon to the building’s entrance, but will also give passersby an idea of the use of the facility. Submitting artists should consider lighting and other elements that will draw attention to the mural at various times throughout the day. Water features are highly discouraged, but the selected artist may have an opportunity to collaborate with landscape architects for the project.
Artists should keep in mind that this is a public location, visible at all times and exposed to all weather conditions in Lubbock. Any concepts that may be considered polemic or political should be avoided.

TRADEMARK PROPERTY CO. IMPLEMENTS LOCAL PUBLIC ART PROGRAMS AT TWO FORT WORTH DEVELOPMENTS
Art programs at Waterside and WestBend underscore Fort Worth-based developer’s commitment to local talent
FORT WORTH, Texas (Dec. 7, 2015) – Trademark Property Co. today announced new public art programs underway at the developer’s two Fort Worth properties, Waterside and WestBend. The art programs are intended to support Fort Worth culture and arts through historical tributes and commissions by local artists. They are a part of Trademark’s Conscious Place initiative; a stakeholder driven development model that aims to ensure that its properties are more than just places of commerce, but also places of community and meaning.
“At Trademark, we truly believe that in order to fulfill our Conscious Place vision, we must make sure that each project is a reflection of the community in which it exists,” said Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co. “One of the ways we accomplish this is through a commitment to the local and artisan. We have spent months working with artists to ensure that these public art programs add soul and character to each property, and we hope that the art inspires and engages visitors for years to come.”
Trademark has commissioned Texas artist Bob Wade to lead the public art program at Waterside, the company’s first ground up Conscious Place mixed-use development. Currently under construction at Bryant Irvin Road and Arborlawn Drive, the 63-acre site previously served as the Lockheed Martin Recreation Association (LMRA). As part of the program, which will be a combination of sculpture and murals, Wade will repurpose amusement rides and play equipment located on the original site into public art that will be located around Waterside. In addition, Wade is giving new life to vintage black and white photographs that tell the history of the property over the past 75 years by hand tinting the images and transforming them into on site murals. The art is slated for installation in spring/summer 2016.
At WestBend, located in Fort Worth’s University District, two local artists with ties to neighboring Texas Christian University (TCU), Devon Nowlin and Cam Schoepp, have been selected for public art commissions at the property.
Fort Worth native Nowlin created five photographic murals that capture the shopping and dining experience, health and fitness, and the natural surroundings of the WestBend property. Installed in early December, Nowlin’s murals are displayed throughout the property, focusing on the areas facing the scenic Trinity River and Trinity River Trails. Schoepp, an associate professor of art at TCU, will install a ten-foot tall sculpture in spring 2016 which will incorporate a water feature into the welcoming green space near the valet area.
Waterside is a 63-acre mixed-use development currently under construction at Bryant Irvin Road and Arborlawn Drive in Fort Worth, Texas. Phase I, which is slated for completion in 2016, includes retail and restaurants, signature public space, The Grove, 383 multi-family units and a number of Conscious Place amenities. Tenants will include Whole Foods Market, REI, Taco Diner, Zoes Kitchen, Blaze Pizza, Sleep Train, Massage Heights, Envy Nails, Amazing Lash Studio plus many additional retail and restaurants. At full build out, Waterside will be a walkable, dynamic district including 200,000 square feet of retail space and riverside restaurants, 800 multifamily residential units, two to three hotels, office buildings, and potential for additional high density single family housing, much of which will be situated along the Trinity River. For more information, visit watersidefw.com or follow Waterside on Facebook and Twitter.
WestBend is located on the Trinity River in Fort Worth’s University District, one of Dallas-Fort Worth’s strongest infill retail corridors. WestBend is undergoing a major redevelopment adding new retail, restaurants and WestBend 2, a new 81,150-square-foot building that includes The Fresh Market on the ground floor and 57,000 square feet of new Class A office space directly above. Current tenants include The Fresh Market, Zoes Kitchen, East Hampton Sandwich Co., Silver Fox and the River Plaza office tenants. Upon completion in spring 2016, WestBend will include 278,000 square feet of retail, dining and office space. For more information, visit westbendfw.com or follow WestBend on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

DALLAS (Oct. 21, 2015) – The Catholic Foundation has announced professional mosaic artist Stuart Hausmann as the winner of the 2015 ‘A Year on the Plaza Art Competition.’ His mural, “Paint the Town,” is now on display in the Dallas Arts District on a 28-by-9-foot public art wall in The Catholic Foundation Plaza.
The winning artwork will remain a public work of art for one year at The Catholic Foundation Plaza, located on the grounds of the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe across from the Meyerson Symphony Center. The 3,900-square-foot plaza was dedicated in 2006 as a gift from The Catholic Foundation to the Dallas community to commemorate the Foundation’s 50th anniversary. The public space is an oasis for Dallas citizens and visitors to enjoy at no cost.
“Stuart Hausmann’s mural brings a youthful and vibrant perspective to The Catholic Foundation Plaza,” said J. Matthew Kramer, President and CEO of The Catholic Foundation. “We congratulate Stuart and hope that his work will inspire the next generation of local artists and be appreciated by all the visitors to the Dallas Arts District throughout the year.”
After Hausmann moved to Dallas three years ago, he began volunteering with local nonprofits in the Arts District. He was inspired by their ability to help young artists develop their talent, and therein create an even richer and more vibrant city for the arts.
“Since living in Dallas, I have had the honor and privilege of working and volunteering for a number of organizations within the city’s Arts District that offer the public wonderful resources for enrichment and entertainment,” Hausmann said. “I have also witnessed firsthand how these places help to foster, nurture, and inspire learning and creativity with Dallas’ youth. I used this observation as the main source of inspiration when creating my mural.”
Hausmann’s work has been exhibited throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and was featured in Craighead Green Gallery’s New Texas Talent exhibition. In 2012, he was chosen as a finalist for Texas’ prestigious Hunting Art Prize award. He is currently working on his second children’s picture book after publishing his debut title last fall, School Day with a Zombie.
Two honorable mention winners were selected as part of the 2015 ‘A Year on the Plaza Art Competition’: Laura Moore with “All Bright Under the Texas Sky” and Kay Wyne with “Stop and Smell the Flowers.”
A panel of highly respected members of the local arts community chooses the winning piece each year. This year’s Selection Committee included: Father Rudy Garcia, rector of the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe; Cindy M. Gummer, owner of The Enchanted Galleries; Patricia B. Meadows, Art Connections; Katherine Wagner, CEO of the Business Council for the Arts; and architect Gary Skotnicki.
Winners of the ‘A Year on the Plaza Art Competition’ receive a $2,500 award in addition to the year-long public display. Former winners include Marty Ray’s “Celebrate Life, Celebrate Art” in 2006, Ann Cushing Gantz’s “Trumpeting Angels” in 2007, Pamela Nelson’s “Magic Carpet” in 2008; David Zvanut’s “Music on Parade” in 2009; J. Lynn Kelly’s “Downtown Playground” in 2010; Rebecca Guy’s “Dallas in Wonderland” in 2011; Cornelius Brackens Jr. “When the Troops Come Marching Home” in 2012; Jim Keyes’ “Homage to The Concertgebouw” in 2013; and Barbara Dybala’s “The Dallas Arts District Word Search,” in 2014.
The deadline for the 2016 Year on the Plaza Art Competition will be in August. For more details, please visit www.catholicfoundation.com.
The Catholic Foundation is a trusted giving vehicle for the Catholic community. Chartered in 1955, the Foundation was founded by a group of dedicated Catholic laymen with a vision that extended far beyond the charitable needs of the moment. The Foundation has spent decades building a strong community, helping donors fulfill their charitable goals, and preserving the founders’ vision and philanthropic legacy. Over the past 25 years, the Foundation has provided more than $94 million in grants to religious, charitable and educational organizations. Today, it manages more than $200 million in assets and houses more than 370 charitable funds and trusts.
