Sugar Land Installs Donated Sculptures to Town Square Plaza

Sugar Land, TX - Sugar Land recently installed two sculptures in Sugar Land Town Square’s public plaza – part of a 10-piece collection donated by a Sugar Land resident to the City through the Sugar Land Legacy Foundation.

Other statues are located at Sugar Land Memorial Park, Oyster Creek Park and Fire Station 4 in First Colony. A future installation is planned for Highlands Park.

The first bronze sculpture depicts a guitar player sitting on the ledge of a fountain facing City Walk. The second represents two girls taking a “selfie” near a bench with City Hall in the background. Both show activities common in the plaza.

The public art donations were reviewed and approved by two citizen committees in 2014 – the Parks, Art, Recreation, Culture and Streetscapes (PARCS) board and the Sugar Land Legacy Foundation – before final approval of City Council the same year.

The inclusion of sculpture in the Town Square plaza aligns with the continued vision of the City and the Legacy Foundation’s commitment to establish cultural arts amenities that “provide and/or support activities and facilities that enrich the artistic, cultural, educational, and historical character of Sugar Land.”

The City is currently developing a Public Art Plan that reflects the public’s strong desire for art that beautifies the city, has a place-making quality and supports places where people gather such as Sugar Land Town Square.

An unveiling ceremony commemorating the donation will be announced at a later date in partnership with the Legacy Foundation.
