The stars at night are big and bright, deep in the heart of Arlington.
“The Star of Texas” is a project unveiled by the Arlington Museum of Art in November 2015 and brings 6-foot fiberglass stars to the American Dream City, according to www.arlington-tx.gov. The 20 stars represent different aspects of Arlington. They are located in the cultural arts district, the downtown area, entertainment district and other places throughout the city, according to the city website.
The stars were sculpted by Chris Cunningham and decorated by different local artists, according to the city website. Each star has its own theme embodying what living in the American Dream City means, according to the city website.
The stars raise awareness of the cultural arts, creativity, and talent of local artists in Arlington, said Chris Hightower, Arlington Museum of Art executive director, in a previous City of Arlington article.
