With the support of the Nolanville Public Art Program, the City of Nolanville has announced a sculpture unveiling for a group of sculptures installed as part of the newly formed Nolanville Public Arts Program (NPAP).
The celebration will be held on May 5 at 2 P.M. at the City’s Wonderpass on Main Street and I-14 Frontage Road. City Officials and the artists will be in attendance to welcome and discuss the new art.
Four sculptures from two celebrated Texas artists, Joe Barrington, and Peter Mangan, have been added to the City's public art collection and will be featured on all four corners of the Wonderpass. The Wonderpass is the newly transformed dark underpass into an attractive and accessible walking path that has brought an overall vibrancy to the area since its installation in July of 2022. At night, the Wonderpass is illuminated with different color combinations and motions, adding a beautiful and thoughtful entryway into the City and downtown area from I-14.
This public art unveiling is the first exhibit of the newly created NPAP, formed in January of 2023 by the Nolanville Economic Development Corporation. The mission of the NPAP is to add value to Nolanville's cultural, visual, and economic growth through public art.
It is proven that art enhances the quality of life for all who live near and visit it. It helps to give a community its identity, fosters community pride, and can create a sense of belonging. Nolanville is no exception and has much to gain in these areas by installing these four new art pieces.
This event is free and open to the public. Parking can be found at the Central Union Church of Christ at 100 Avenue G Nolanville TX 76559.
