TIRZ 25 recently installed lighting on the painted columns at S. Main @ Fondren, a continuation of the new public art program UP Art Studio produced for the 5 Corners community. The project was established under a tri-party agreement, in collaboration between TIRZ 25, who funded the project, TIRZ 9, and the Five Corners Management District. As part of a larger beautification project, UP Art Studio consulted with engineering firm Huitt Zollars and planning firm Asakura Robinson, on the painting and lighting of the underpass and columns.

The new civic art program will have ongoing opportunities available for local talent. If you know of qualified artists with lived experience in the 5 Corners District, please send them our way.
