Arlington Museum of Art’s Newest Public Project Hopes to Attract All the Art Stars

by Christina Rees March 10, 2015

cfiles73439The Arlington Museum of Art‘s upcoming public art project is named “Star of Texas” and will feature 20 big fiberglass stars, each transformed by a Texas artist, installed around its downtown and entertainment areas starting this September. The museum, under the directorship of Chris Hightower, is nearing completion of a capital campaign to raise the $150,000 budget for the project.

The idea is that the museum will invite 200 “high-profile” artists from around the state to submit proposals for how they’d doctor a six-by-six foot (and one foot thick) pre-built star, while the selection process remains open to proposals from other artists. A jury will make the selection after the submission window closes, which is in about a month. Chosen artists will receive a stipend, though the museum has not made the figure public.
