New additions to the Addison area have been installed and revealed, each bringing fresh new life to the parks.
The new sculptures are Meditation and Three Tenors, each made by Loveland, Colorado, artist Joshua Tobey. Befitting his specialty, each sculptor captures the whimsical nature of wildlife animals, fitting perfectly with the Addison atmosphere.
Not only that, but Lost in Wisconsin was recently given a facelift, the process requiring sanding, priming, and painting, which took a week and a half to do.
The Three Tenors feature three coyotes howling into the sky as they serenade each person that passes by. All of the coyotes have a specific name, starting with Placido, Jose, and Luciano, and they all stand three feet tall. If you’d like to see this dynamic trio in person, you can find them at Beckert Park, 5044 Addison Circle Drive, Addison, TX 75001.
Meditation features an unnamed bear that is sitting in the lotus position. For those that participate in outdoor yoga in Addison, you will encounter this bear sitting in front of the pavilion that is right near the Blueprint of Addison. Many outdoor yoga classes happen in this area, so that many people might find inspiration in this five-foot-tall statue. You can find this statue at Addison Circle Park, 4970 Addison Circle, Addison, TX 75001.
Lost in Wisconsin
Installed in 2016, Lost in Wisconsin has been a staple for public art in Addison, Texas, for many years. This piece of art was donated by the renowned artist Nic Noblique and the Addison Arbor Foundation. This beautiful blue sculptor was originally a piece in Wisconsin, but it found a comfortable home in Texas, fitting nicely with the atmosphere. If you’re curious about this sculptor and wish to see it, you can locate it at the corner of Proton and Beltway, near the Addison Athletic Club, 3900 Beltway Drive, Addison, TX 75001.
