This is the second post in a series on publicly-displayed sculptures in Preston Hollow. Last week, we highlighted the student-made pieces in front of The Winston School.

Churchill Recreation Center is home to Barrett Debusk’s four-sculpture installation, a product of Dallas’ public art program. The city commissioned Debusk to create “People at Play,” to accompany the rec center after its 1998 completion. Debusk’s whimsical, steel figures, installed in 2000, feature a red boy and a yellow girl on a park bench, a yellow woman walking her yellow dog, and two red boys playing a card game next to a green tree. Dallas’ commission with Debusk was worth $22,000. Most of Debusk’s work is featured at the William and Joseph Gallery in Santa Fe, N.M.
