Barnes Bridge Park Update 11/20/17

We posted this question to the Town of Sunnyvale over the weekend - "We saw in the Sunnyvale newspaper that Sunnyvale has signed an agreement to take over the Barnes Bridge Park and at this point the park is closed. Do you have a schedule of what Sunnyvale is going to improve in the park and when it will be back open."

Here is the answer We received from the Economic Development Director, Traci Anderson of Sunnyvale.

Yes, The Town of Sunnyvale has signed an agreement to take over Barnes Bridge Park. As of right now the plans are to close the park down for an extended period of time (6-9 months or longer if need be). Town of Sunnyvale is trying to deter the events that have been happening in this location prior to putting in any significant investment. The future plans are still unknown at this time. We just need to give it some time. We understand there were good times had back there by families but there was a lot more bad that people just don't realize was back there and we didn't either until we went to start cleaning it up. We want it to be a great place for families to visit in the future.

So the bottom line is the park will become a great place for all hopefully sometime in 2018. We am confident that the Town of Sunnyvale will do a fantastic job in rebuilding the park.

We will try to keep everyone informed as things progress.

Christmas in the Park is designed to be a low cost event for families to celebrate the holiday season.

Dallas

The exhibition will feature his large-scale sculpture, Rang Phnom Flower, Pich's largest and most ambitious single-form sculpture to date. Measuring 25 feet in length, its complex construction is composed of hundreds of strands of rattan and bamboo.

Crow Collection of Asian Art, 2010 Flora St. crowcollection.org 214-979-6430

DALLAS: Through Dec. 31 "Neighborhoods We Called Home" A collaborative exhibit with Dallas Jewish Historical Society, Dallas Mexican American Historical League, and Remembering Black Dallas Inc. exploring the historic neighborhoods of Dallas that served as strong, supportive communities for Jewish, Hispanic, and African-American Dallasites from the early 1900s and beyond. Materials will be installed in three corresponding structures: a Victorian house the Village has dedicated to the presentation of Jewish history; the railroad section house, as railroad work attracted many workers of Tejano or Mexican heritage; and the Shotgun House, originally located in Dallas' largest freedman's town. Dallas Heritage Village, 6501 Crawley Dr. dallasheritagevillage.org

DALLAS: Through Jan. 7 "Tom Sachs: Tea Ceremony" The exhibition centers on an immersive environment representing Sachs' distinctive reworking of chanoyu, or traditional Japanese tea ceremony—including the myriad elements essential to that intensely ritualistic universe. During the course of the exhibition, the Nasher will present a series of public demonstrations in which Sachs or a colleague will perform the tea ceremony for a few guests. The walls of the tea house will be removed for the occasion, enabling visitors to watch the ceremony as it unfolds. Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora St. nashersculpturecenter.org

DALLAS: Through Dec. 17 "Invisible Cities" An exhibition and screening series showcasing more than 20 contemporary video works by renowned and emerging artists from China, Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Myanmar, and Vietnam. These pivotal works represent recent key developments in moving image art in Asia. Crow Collection of Asian Art, 2010 Flora St. crowcollection.org

DALLAS: Through Feb. 4 "Paper into Sculpture" Even as the shift to digitized images, virtual reality, and social media has been said to herald its obsolescence, paper nonetheless remains inescapable in our daily lives. The artists—Noriko Ambe, Marco Maggi, Joshua Neustain, Nancy Rubins, and Franz West—play on tensions between commonly held understanding of sculpture and what paper can and cannot do when pushed to its physical limit. Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora St. nashersculpturecenter.org

DALLAS: Through May 6 "Journey to Space" The exhibit features a full-size simulated International Space Station, robotics, water rockets, Neil Armstrong's helmet and gloves, plus a space-inspired playspace for young cadets. Perot Museum, 2201 N. Field St. perotmuseum.org 214-428-5555

DALLAS: Nov. 5-Dec. 31 Holidays at Galleria Dallas From the iconic 95-foot Christmas tree to Missile Toes—the ice-skating Santa who shoots fireworks from his skates—the holiday celebration is much like the shopping center (and Texas): big and bold. The holiday season at Galleria Dallas kicks off in early November with the decorating of America's tallest indoor Christmas tree, which features nearly a half million lights, 10,000 ornaments, and a 100-pound, 10-foot-tall LED star. The festivities continue throughout the season with live entertainment and other holiday events. Galleria Dallas, 13350 Dallas Pkwy. galleriadallas.com

DALLAS: Nov. 17-Dec. 23 "Frosty and Friends" Presented by Dallas Children's Theater, Kathy Burks' celebrated troupe melts hearts with the endearing tale of Frosty, a lonely frozen figure hoping to make a difference during the season of giving. Frosty is sad when his elf friends Barry, Surly, and Zoe become too busy to even play in the snow. Fortunately, Frosty meets a kind snowy owl and a friendly reindeer who are more than happy to spend the cold winter days with him. Revel in the joy of the holidays as this spirited musical comes to life. Dallas Children's Theater, 5938 Skillman St. facebook.com/dallaschildrenstheater
