Art Pieces

Three public art pieces will soon be coming to the North Bentonville Trail:

• “SunKissed” by Nathan Pierce. The bright, bursting lines of this sculpture echo the radiating spokes of the intersecting trails. Clearly visible from North Walton Boulevard, it provides a striking visual landmark for the North Trail system.

• “Ozarks Topography” by Ed Pennebaker. This multi-colored glass sculpture takes in its inspiration from the colors and textures of the surrounding bluffs, rock formations, creeks and the sky. By filtering and reflecting the light of the surrounding landscape, the sculpture will respond dynamically to varying weather conditions and seasonal color shifts throughout the year.

• “PAC-Man” by Craig Gary. This is a whimsical, 7-foot-tall striding figure fashioned from native Arkansas stone. This work provides an opportunity for historical and geological education.
