Photo Finish

Red and yellow steel beams rise along the edge of a parking lot, each a beacon of contrast with the bright blue sky. Vibrant spots of color in the blazing summer sun, they glow defiantly above the clay dirt where wisps of grass struggle to remain green. Aptly named Wildflower, this new public artwork stands outside the East Regional Library in Fort Worth. In collaboration with the local community, some of the beams are etched with literary quotes that extol the importance of books and libraries. The installation is the work of Dan Cheetham and Michelle Tarsney of the Austin studio FYOOG, a forward-thinking architecture/design group aimed at connecting people and the environment by using art that surprises and inspires. They were inspired by the seasonal bloom of wildflowers that typically pop up along fields edging the interstate, growing in beauty against all odds. 6301 Bridge St., Fort Worth
