The Addison Arbor Foundation (AAF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to promote sustainable natural environments within the Addison community and to enhance Town parks/spaces with plantings and public art.
AAF is an all-volunteer staff so 100% of your donations go directly to fund projects. AAF works with individual donors, neighborhood associations and businesses willing to sponsor new public art and landscape projects in Addison. With additional donations we can accelerate the pace of new art and landscape enhancements to beautify our town.
Several public arts projects have been developed and managed by AAF in cooperation with the Town of Addison Parks Department. One of the exciting new art works planned for 2016 is Lost in Wisconsin, a piece donated by Nic Noblique, a renowned Texas artist that has worked with AAF on other projects.
A Profound Secret was installed at the corner of Arapaho and Addison roads and is the first of many AAF public arts projects planned for the north Addison/Quorum corridor to complement existing Addison public arts and parks features.
AAF is committed to enhancing Addison’s park and public areas with landscaping and plantings.
AAF continues to work with the Town of Addison and the community to identify new public arts and landscaping projects. Public arts projects include:
- New art work commissioned and purchased by AAF.
- Existing art work that has been purchased, donated or decommissioned.
In all cases, the AAF team approves the design of new pieces and oversees the restoration of existing pieces (if necessary) and manages installation, lighting and landscaping for these projects.
