 District Sculpture Trail

Arlington Parks and Recreation is now accepting submissions to complete phase four of the Entertainment District Sculpture Trail at Richard Greene Linear Park.

A budget has been set at $140,000 to fund up to three sculptures and associated foundations.

Unity Arch, a key centerpiece, was dedicated on April 6, 2017, as the 18th sculpture on the trail. The trail is planned to showcase between 15 to 20 sculpture sites, potentially totaling more than 40 pieces of art.

The City of Arlington has created this sculpture trail to expand its arts in the Arlington Entertainment District, Parks Assistant Director Gary Packan said. Parks and Recreation also hopes the sculpture trail will draw more people to its parks and get people outside and active.

"It gets people to learn a little bit more about art, and enjoy the outdoors at the same time," Packan said.

The Entertainment District Sculpture Trail Steering Committee will be accepting professional, amateur, and student entries, including both freestanding and interactive sculptures from now until July 20, 2017. Artwork should be durable enough to withstand high winds and heat.
