Trinity Water Fowls
Public Arts Project
Six bridge monuments feature mosaics of twelve different species of water bird from the greater Trinity River Watershed were completed in the fall of 2015. Each mosaic on these monuments is over eight feet tall and five and a half feet wide, and made from of a combination of glass and natural stone tiles.
The design of the bridge monuments is inspired from the Will Rogers Memorial, built in 1936 in the Art Deco style. Referencing the similar movements of humans and water, the mosaics are visible both to pedestrians in Trinity Park, and motorists on the parkway. To inspire the designs, Sato issued a call for photographs of wildlife native to the Trinity River Watershed by North Texas photographers.
Two of my images were selected, and will now stand eternal for all to see as they pass through north Texas.
