Dalstrom Park Dedication Event

Date: Saturday, December 5, 2009
Time: 11:00am
Location: Dalstrom Park - Shelby Drive & Weaver Road - Shelby Drive Entrance

UrbanArt is hosting a dedication of the completion of the Dalstrom Park public art project. The ceremony will take place at the Shelby Drive entrance of Dalstrom Park, at the trailhead to the right of the park. Both Mayor Wharton and Councilman Edmund Ford, Jr., will speak at the event.

Dalstrom Park’s public art is a City of Memphis Percent-for-Art project and was a part of the Division of Park Services project to add amenities such as playgrounds, pavilions and picnic areas to Dalstrom Park. Local Artist Suzy Hendrix created artwork to both compliment and contrast the natural setting of the park.
