I was privileged to be chosen by the city of Ft. Worth Trinity Metro TexRail to create an 8-panel public art display for their Smithfield Depot in North Richland Hills. This project started with a call for artists in January of 2019 with notification of artists selected for the short list nearly a year later. From there, 3 artists were assigned to each station. We had to prepare a proposal that reflected the character of our station and surrounding location. I decided to research the city and create a timeline of the interesting points and write text to go with each image. I called it North Richland Hills: Our Story. They did not have a historical society or consolidation of information that I could find, so this involved hours and hours of research as well as walking around the area and taking notes from historical landmarks in front of buildings, the cemetery and such. Thankfully this is the type of research I love to do. I presented my idea to a panel from TexRail via Zoom since the pandemic was in its initial wave. Ultimately, they chose my proposal and work began.


The art is reproduced on 3 ft. by 5 ft. translucent acrylic panels and has the text written for each scene printed at the upper left corner. The group originally chose me for my skies and landscapes, so I painted outdoor scenes. I had to keep in mind that the imagery of the story, the main interest of the pieces, needed to be kept in an area of the panel high enough to be seen by the passengers waiting to get on the train or coming off of the train, but still contain the big skies they liked. I created the art at half size and provided digital files. The historical text on the panels also tie into the present and show the positive attributes of North Richland Hills. The originals are now available for sale without the text.
