Tittle McFadden Public Safety Center Public Art

The City of Lewisville, Texas, is currently constructing the Tittle McFadden Public Safety Center (description below). Completion is expected to be during the first quarter of 2025. The City Council, city management, and the appointed Arts Advisory Board have a strong desire to accent the new facility with a visually striking exterior public art installation outside the building’s entrance. The placement and vision of the project lends itself to sculpture or similarly durable artwork in a range of materials proven able to withstand the extremes of Texas weather, with sufficient visual appeal to be seen from nearby streets and to complement the scale and architecture of the building.
