FORT WORTH (AP) – Fort Worth may soon be getting an outdoor sculpture that has been temporarily on display at Chicago’s Millennium Park.

“Tabachin Ribbon” — a yellow-painted carbon steel sculpture weighing up to 8,000 pounds — was produced by the Mexican artist Yvonne Domenge.

Martha Peters of the Arts Council of Fort Worth and Tarrant County tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram the Millennium Park director offered the sculpture to Fort Worth after speaking at the city’s 10th anniversary of the public art program last year.

The Fort Worth Arts Commission voted to pursue the donation.

Fort Worth has to pay the costs of transportation and installation, estimated at up to $60,000. The City Council in the next few weeks is expected to consider approving the expenditure from next year’s public art budget.
