ON THE COVER
Artist Brad J Goldberg was commissioned to create a visually engaging entrance at two separate corners of the Spring Creek Nature Area in Richardson, TX. The design consists of two portal sculptures made from Kenoran Sage granite with cut-outs in the shape of a leaf that form the portals, which collectively are named "Sylvan Portals." Long seat walls "ground" the sculptures into the landscape and granite seating elements in the shape of leaves provide users of the nature area with a place to rest. Installation by Dee Brown Inc. of Richardson, TX. Stone supplied by Coldspring, Cold Spring, MN. Cover photo was taken by Nathan Shands. Story begins on page 16.
