Victory Park in Dallas Gets Numerous New Murals and Public Art Pieces

By  | 

“It’s always exciting to stumble upon art in unexpected areas. In a parking garage, which is usually boring and industrial, people will discover these giant murals and interact with them,” Artist Lesli Marshall told Dallas News. Marshall was recently commissioned to bring five new murals to Victory Park Lane, specifically, the parking garage. Her murals depict brightly colored creatures formed with geometric shapes with a combination of carefree swipes of color and meticulously placed designs. Her pieces include birds, fish, lions, elephants, and a cow skull.

Marshall’s work, which can be seen here on her website and on her Instagram, is part of the 42 Murals Project 2017. The purpose of the project is to offer free art to the visitors and locals in the Deep Ellum area and Dallas. They aim to attract artists from all walks of life to pitch and make incredible murals that will encourage people to tour the area to see the pieces.

More public art will pop up in the Victory Park area according to Dallas News like an installation from Tim Bavington who works with pillars of bright, yet soft, colors to create towering fence-like sculptures.
