“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.READ MORE: Relatively Boring Week Ahead Weather-wise, But Could We See A Few Snowflakes?
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.
