Boerne's Permanent Public Art Collection Grows by Two!

Art-Al-Fresco

Boerne’s public art program will add two sculptures to its permanent collection from the most recent Art al Fresco exhibition. These additions continue the City’s five-year plan to grow Boerne’s public art collection and are a part of Boerne’s Art al Fresco program, a temporary outdoor “art on loan” competition of large-scale sculptures displayed around Boerne’s Hill Country Mile and trails.

The first acquisition is “Traction” by Dallas artist Art Fairchild, the bright blue and seemingly “whirling” sculpture that greets visitors as they arrive at the Patrick Heath Public Library. Winner of the “Boerne’s Choice” Award, Traction received the most votes from Boerne residents in on-line public voting. Traction is composed of 300 individual pieces of tubular steel and acorn nuts which create an interesting functional design element. According to the artist, “The driving force behind my work is the interaction and intricacies of shape, form and balance: contrasting simplicity with complexity.”

“Tilt” by Wesley Stolusky of Kaufman, Texas, was also selected for Boerne’s permanent collection. It will remain in its place at the Old No. 9 trailhead at East Blanco Rd. Made of steel, “Tilt” catches the eye for its ability to balance despite its topsy-turvy appearance.

“Boerne’s Art al Fresco program is a collaboration between the City and the Boerne arts community; it beautifies our parks and trails and has been a great program.” according to Council woman, Nina Woolard.  “People stop me on the street and talk about what a joy it is to take their kids walking on the trail, looking for the new pieces, discussing them and voting on them.”
