“Southlake Constellation” Sculpture Dedicated at The Marq Southlake

The City of Southlake dedicated the “Southlake Constellation” sculpture by Kathi Caricoff at The Marq Southlake on Monday, May 23, 2016.

The artist, Kathi Caricoff, designed a celestial-inspired piece with three abstract stainless steel stars. The celestial theme was created when Southlake Arts Council had an idea for the artwork to resemble a Texas night sky. The way the stars interact with one another is reminiscent of people dancing and their various heights make the artwork visually engaging from inside The Marq as well as outside. Caricoff’s work is designed to be relevant, welcoming and approachable for a broad audience.

Southlake Consetllation Day and NightIn recent years, Southlake has shown a true commitment to the arts unveiling pieces of public art in the City’s roundabouts, parks and facilities. The City is proud to have art at The Marq, Southlake’s first multipurpose community recreation center. Phase 1 of the Marq is complete and Phase 2 will begin construction this fall. When complete, the Marq will be a place the community can practice many forms of art through music, theater, art classes, dancing and sports. The beautiful “Southlake Constellation” is an iconic sculptural statement for The Marq Southlake and our community.
