Park District Unveils Five Unique Works of Art

DALLAS, TEXAS – Trammell Crow Company (TCC) and High Street Residential have officially unveiled a museum-quality art collection permanently installed at Park District, the 2-tower, mixed-use development positioned in the heart of Downtown Dallas. At the intersection of the Arts District, Uptown and Klyde Warren Park, Park District boasts more than 900,000 square feet of premier Class A office space, restaurants and luxury residences. The towers are connected via a central plaza, designed by The Office of James Burnett, the landscape architecture firm who designed the award-winning Klyde Warren Park.

“Trammell Crow Company is thrilled to reveal this carefully selected collection of art,” said Scott Krikorian, Senior Managing Director of TCC’s Dallas-Fort Worth Business Unit. “We believe the art enhances the tenant experience and adds a unique, personal aspect to the development. Additionally, Park District’s proximity to the world-class Dallas Arts District provided inspiration to display artwork from talented artists from around the globe.”

The Park District art collection was curated in collaboration with Houston art advisory firm, Kinzelman Art Consulting and includes four works of art by significant national and international artists including Danish-Icelandic conceptual artist Olafur Eliasson, British multidisciplinary artist Billy Childish and American painter and printmaker Jennifer Bartlett.

Internationally known for his immersive art installations, Eliasson’s wall-based sculpture The Breathing Moon is fabricated of 24 crystal spheres that encourages viewer interaction and investigation.

His largest paintings to date, Billy Childish created Cypress Trees and Cypress Swamp specifically for Park District. Both paintings skillfully illustrate Childish’s signature fluid and gestural painting technique.

New York based artist Jennifer Bartlett’s Amagansett Diptych combines abstraction and representation in her epic and seemingly endless sky painting.

A fifth commissioned artwork was created by Dallas-based duo Brad Oldham and Christy Coltrin. Twist, a mirror-polished stainless steel and Bavarian granite sculpture offers an intriguing point of interest within the center of the plaza.

Julie Kinzelman, Principal of Kinzelman Art Consulting in Houston, said, “Interacting with fine art outside of the traditional walls of a gallery or museum often lends a more personal and relatable engagement. As such, Trammell Crow Company and High Street Residential are dedicated to this visionary approach by thoughtfully infusing unique works of art within the context of the newly completed and sophisticated, Park District Development. Through the works of art by world-class artists Olafur Eliasson, Billy Childish and Jennifer Bartlett we feel that Park District offers a unique opportunity for the tenants and the public to explore art that is at once inspiring and experiential.”
