Local artists to be showcased at Amarillo parks

The City of Amarillo Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) is combining the city’s array of parks with the local arts community.

PARD, in cooperation with the City of Amarillo (COA) Beautification and Public Arts Advisory Board, has created a unique art initiative that will showcase local artists and their art at city parks. The board is funding art pads at Thompson Park, Sam Houston Park, Rick Klein Park, Memorial Park, John Stiff Park, El Alamo Park and Bones Hooks Park.

“It is really a best-of-both-worlds project,” said PARD Director Michael Kashuba. “Displaying art from local artists enhances the visual appeal of our city parks and provides exposure and an outlet for artists to showcase their talents to the entire community.”

The art pads are bolted, circular concrete foundations allowing a wide array of art to be displayed. 

Artists wanting more information on this project should email PARD at info@amarilloparks.org.
