Art on Wabash

Art is maybe the most compelling when it is unexpected. Walking through a narrow path surrounded by trees and crossing water, it was a delight to come across this sculpture. It reminded me of an Eduardo Chillida sculpture found in the Basque countryside sculpture garden in Hernani near San Sebastian. Just like the Richard Meier architecture found in both the farmland of New Harmony and in the urban atmosphere of Dallas, the Eduardo Chillida sculpture is hidden in the Basque countryside and it is also prominently displayed in front of the I.M. Pei designed Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. You can see examples of this Chillida sculpture in my Instagram posts around August 27, 2019. It shows how sensitive we are to the environment for art and how sensitive we are to nature in our cities. We need art and nature in our daily lives. In this picture, farmland and the Wabash River are in the background and on the other side of the path is the MacLeod Barn Abby, a quiet space for meetings, lectures, and events that offer solace for the mind, body, and soul. Gail Thomas and the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture permeated Dallas with a heightened sense of the city having a soul that needed to be nurtured. It became understood that a nurtured city would nurture its inhabitants. A successful city, town, or neighborhood needs to be nurtured. Organic Urbanism treats these places like a garden to be gingerly planted, groomed, and enjoyed. *Art on Wabash
