Installed today on Forth Worth Avenue at Pittman is the Möbius bench, created from repurposed materials by artists Nicole Horn and Erik Glissman.
The two won $6,000 from Spare Parts, a design contest from the Fort Worth Avenue Development Group, and spent about 180 hours constructing the bench.
As I was checking it out today, a guy walked by and said, “Hey, is that a bus stop?” It’s not a bus stop, but wouldn’t it be cool if there were bus stops like this?
A fundraiser for the next Spare Parts contest is Sept. 22 at the forthcoming Four Corners Brewing Co. on Singleton. And a reception for the artists is planned for 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 27, at The Foundry.
