Southlake Public Art
One can travel throughout the City and find public art proudly displayed in open spaces, intersections, key gateways, key destinations, and roundabouts. Throughout the years, the City of Southlake has developed a remarkable collection of public art and has consistently invested in routine maintenance and conservation of those assets.
The Southlake public art collection has always been a staple in the community. It tells a story about the City’s history, artistic style, and residents. With the continued expansion of the public art collection, the Southlake Arts Council has worked diligently to implement the City’s public art initiatives through Southlake Public Arts Programs.
New Art was unveiled on May 24, 2023
The statue "Remembrance and Renewal" by New York artist Mark Weisbeck was unveiled on Wednesday, May 24, 2023, at the Liberty Gardens in Bicentennial Park. It was approved by the Southlake Arts Council on April 26, 2022, and by the Southlake City Council on May 17, 2022.
The 15-foot-tall statue will consist of two stainless steel towers with lightly textured brass in the "Statue of Liberty" green patina.
The sculpture invites the viewer to celebrate with love, honor all those lost and affected by the events of 9-11, and pay tribute to those people and loved ones in a positive, hopeful, and compassionate manner. It invites contemplation and healing within the beautiful gardens and inspires us to work toward harmony, goodwill, and peace worldwide. The sculpture reminds us that no matter what actions of terror are created, there will always be citizens who will stand against it and work toward friendship, understanding, and peace to make the world a better place for all.
