External Media Roundup & Announcements

Jan. 5, 2023, article by Lucinda Breeding-Gonzalez, Denton Record-Chronicle: During a press tour of the newly furnished and completed Frisco Landing, the new UNT campus in Frisco, people gathered in the main stairwell. They stood underneath the new public art installation, designed and created by UNT senior Archit Karkare. The three forms suggest feathers, a reference to UNT’s mascot, the eagle. Read or listen to the article.

Jan. 23, 2023: Sculpture student's talent ‘Soars' in Frisco Branch Campus

The new public art installation called 'Soar' hovers 10 feet above the floor at UNT's Frisco Landing.

University of North Texas sculpture major Archit Karkare's career is soaring, and he hasn't yet graduated. Karkare's 'Soar' sculpture was chosen from a dozen entries. 

The design was the result of a class assignment. View the video from NBCDFW-TV.

Jan. 21, 2023: The City of Bedford's city council commissioned a sculpture to honor the history of the 232-acre Boys Ranch Park, which operated from 1949 to 1957 to provide housing for boys who were wards of the state. During her internship with the City of Bedford, artist Jessica Green (2022, B.A., IADS) was tasked with designing a public sculpture that incorporates respect and remembrance of the past while embracing the future of the Bedford community. Green worked closely with the City of Bedford during a five-month internship to research the history of the Boys Ranch through archived newspaper articles and documents. Green also interviewed Bedford residents, city staff, and former residents of the Boys Ranch. The documents, interviews, and stories provided the narrative that Green translated into the sculpture's design. Read more about it on the City of Bedford website and the Map of Memories website.
