 Spruill Park Dog Sculpture

The Addison Arbor Foundation (AAF) has commissioned local sculptor Eliseo Garcia to bring to life a whimsical dog from limestone.  Eliseo is an internationally known artist whose works can be seen throughout the DFW area.

Eliseo is sculpting the dog on the site of the entrance to the new dog park at Spruill Park.

You can see him working most weekdays from 9 -2.  The piece is planned to be complete before the opening of the dog park area this summer.

 Intersection in Flight

flight-airplaneAAF commissioned the aviation themed pieced “Intersection in Flight”, created by local entrepreneur and artist Eric McGehearty.  “Intersection in Flight”, was inspired by the history of the namesakes of the intersection and their vintage aircraft.  Eric’s design incorporates elements of the airplanes flown by the Wright Brothers and Wiley Post in an innovative and intricate sculpture. The frame of the sculpture is based on the Wright Brothers’ Flyer aircraft. Embedded within the frame are 232 miniature planes based on the Lockheed Vega aircraft flown by Wiley Post.  The sculpture is located at the intersection of Wright Brothers and Wiley Post!
