The Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture invites you to the public unveiling of a new public art project “The Wichita Dome” on October 6, 2018 at Nexus Square at 10:00 a.m.
The Wichita Dome will be installed on the east end of the 12-acre median of Kell East and Kell West Freeway near the Attebury Grain Elevator. The unveiling will include an opening ceremony, ribbon cutting, and artists tours inside the dome.
The sculpture is inspired by the grass house architecture of The Wichita Tribes, whose ancestors lived in the Central and Southern Plains region of the United States. The contemporary design for the dome was created by local artist Erick Zambrano. Erick is a graduate of Midwestern State University, and is currently enrolled in the Master’s Degree sculpture program at the University of Houston. Other artists contributing to the creation of the Wichita Dome are Alexes Anguiano, Audra Lambert, and Ramona Stegal.
The 12-acre median, property of the Texas Department of Transportation, has the potential is serving as a site for temporary public art where artists, families, school children, and visitors can learn about the history and imagine the future of our city. The Wichita Dome will be the second installation by The Alliance on this site.
