Nasher XChange

The Nasher Sculpture Center celebrates its ten year anniversary with a citywide takeover. The public art initiative features ten newly commissioned works of art by ten local and international artists and art collectives at ten different sites. Chances are, you’ll stumble on one or two just driving around. Others, such as Ugo Rondinone’s multi-colored pier at Fish Trap Lake in West Dallas or Ruben Ochoa’s piece at the Trinity River Audubon Center, will take some deliberate seeking. As the various commissions were unveiled, our arts critic, Peter Simek, wrote that many of location choices seem designed to “transform an otherwise marginalized area of the city into an attraction, simultaneously offering the community something that elevates their neighborhood, while challenging Dallas residents to encounter overlooked parts of the city.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
