Uptown Moment

Dallas  |  Stainless Steel and Steel  |  17’ x 6' x 3'

A 17-foot-tall stainless steel sculpture called Uptown Moment was created for the busy corner of McKinney Avenue and Routh Streets in Dallas’ Uptown neighborhood. Brad Oldham and Christy Coltrin created this site-specific installation to celebrate the newly built mixed-use project built on a storied historic location. The artists considered the building’s iconic footprint and turned it on its side to create a framework in which life’s special moments may be captured. Viewers walk around the sculpture to experience the different perspectives, find themselves inside the frame, and see their image within the mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture itself.
