Mobius Bench, the first public art project by the Fort Worth Ave. Development Group’s Spare Parts Public Art Initiative was installed last week at the corner of Pittman and Fort Worth Avenue in Dallas. The looping structure by artists Erik Glissman and Nicole Cullum is made from reclaimed cedar, with a curved exterior skin of recycled sheet metal scales. The bench will be officially unveiled at a press conference on Monday, Aug 27 at 7pm.
Spare Parts is an initiative by the volunterr-run Worth Avenue Development Group to support public art that emphasizes re-used materials and utility for the community. To raise the funds for Spare Parts the FWADG set aside 50% of the proceeds from sales at their annual fundraiser of the same name. This year’s auction is coming up on September 22nd at Four Corners Brewery. Our goal is to support the ingenuity and DIY spirit of the area, and to encourage street life and pride along Fort Worth Avenue.
