The Public Arts Advisory Board of the City of Wylie, Texas, seeks to commission an original, exterior, site-specific, functionally, philosophically, and artistically integrated space(s) for the New Walking Trails and Disc Golf Park. The Municipal Complex has a three-story City Hall, a two-story Recreation Center and a single-floor Library. The Municipal Complex is set on a 253-acre green belt which has walking and nature trails and a meadow behind the buildings for public gatherings. The one-mile long, 12-foot wide concrete trail traverses the property from the north, at Brown Street, to the southeast, at FM 1378 (Country Club Road). The trail meanders along the existing tree line and crosses two creeks. It is the first phase of a more expansive trail system envisioned in the near future. The facilities will provide education, recreation and public service. There are two spaces available for art located at each entrance of the walking trails.
