We’re proud to bring an incredible opportunity for local artists to work on our public art project.

The City of DeSoto is seeking to commission an artist or team of artists to design and produce an original public art installation as a Reflection Walk to be located along the Roy Orr Trail. The  walking trail is a highly accessible destination used for passive recreation nestled within a partially wooded limestone escarpment.  Follow this link for information on the program and to download the application.
