Public art has never been more important with galleries closed because of the coronavirus. If there’s a silver lining to stay-at-home orders, it’s that artists have plenty of time to work.

Junius Heights neighbor Ace Cordell welded multiple sculptures and placed them in neighbors’ yards as a gift. He hopes to add more of the handmade, custom sculptures to create a neighborhood art walk.

If you’re tired of walking the same old trails or want to avoid the swarms at White Rock Lake, take a walk down Worth Street and look for Cordell’s stunning work.
