Selfies and shares abound with the latest wave of public art at WestBend, Trademark Property Co.’s University District mixed-use development. Twelve new works splashed across the property expand its already impressive public art program, bringing added color, character and a unique spirit to the property.
The new works showcase a variety of style and medium by both local and national artists, including 10 murals by Dallas-based artist Kyle Steed, a site-specific “love” sculpture by San Francisco artist Laura Kimpton, and a mural by local artist Lauren Childs. These join prior works by local artist Devon Nowlin and a rotating photography exhibit from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art.
To celebrate its public art program, WestBend will host a #WestBendLove Snap & Seek with artists Lauren Childs, Devon Nowlin, and an Instagram takeover by Kyle Steed. The first 50 guests to check in will receive a free swag bag illustrated by Steed. #WestBendLove will feature a Polaroid scavenger hunt, frozen treats, drinks from HG Sply Co., surprises, and the opportunity to meet the artists in attendance.
