Five sculptures commissioned by the city are coming to Forest Park Boulevard. “Beauty in Becoming” by Lynné Bowman Cravens will consist of eight-foot-tall folding steps that progress to create an origami scissor-tailed flycatcher bird.
What is a scissor-tailed flycatcher, you ask? Known as the “Texas bird of paradise,” the bird is native to Texas, Oklahoma, and parts of Mexico. They can often be seen along the Trinity River during the spring and summer.
Located near the South Holly water treatment plant, the aluminum sculptures will be painted white to stand out against the green of the adjacent levee and the sky. Drivers will easily be able to see the artwork from the road + trail users can enjoy the installation from the east side of the Trinity River. Bird watchers and art lovers alike can see the sculptures starting in early August. 🐦
