PROJECT HIGHLIGHT | Do Something Good For Your Neighbor
RDG Dahlquist Art Studio has installed a sculptural plaza with seating lighting and a pathway at Lake Como Park. The plaza is anchored by a strong, weathered steel sculpture that frames the view of Lake Como, celebrating the founding of the park and the roles William H. Wilburn and Amon G. Carter, Sr. played, along with engraved excerpts from the Lake Como Weekly over the years.
This project is the first inspired by the Lake Como Park Public Art Master Plan, developed with input from the community, by artists Anitra Blayton and Mel Ziegler, and adopted by the Fort Worth Art Commission on February 12, 2018. The plan identifies both aesthetic and functional elements to increase the community’s use and enjoyment of the park through improvements to existing infrastructure and the addition of new park amenities with integral elements commemorating important people and events of the Como Community’s history.
