Art on the Llano completes fifth sculpture installation - KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock

Art on the Llano completes fifth of seven sculpture installations

Provided by the Texas Department of Transportation

Art on the Llano completed its fifth installation on Monday, Nov. 4, at 9:30 a.m. at 19th Street and Quaker Avenue.

The fifth installation features a set of sculptures by Jerry Daniel titled, "Dancers." Daniel's focus for the past 25 years has been to create visual expressions of joy, movement and celebration. Using brushstrokes of steel arcs he creates dancing forms in space, which appear in harmony with natural landscapes as well as provide an enhancement to architecture.

Art on the Llano is a public art project that currently features four larger-than-life sculptures that have been installed at different locations around Lubbock. Each sculpture is strategically placed allowing motorists to view the artwork from the road.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) donated seven, 12 x 12 pads, to display the public art. The featured art is chosen by the Art on the Llano Committee, which is made up of local artists and people with a passion for art.

Each sculpture featured in the public art project is on loan from the artist and will be on display for a two-year period. The Art on the Llano Committee will then choose new sculptures to be installed and displayed at the seven different sites.

The committee secured a two-year grant to cover costs associated with the transportation and installation of the sculptures. If a business or individual would like to make a donation to keep the program running, please call the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts (LHUCA) at 806-762-8606.
