We are grateful to our friends at TACA for introducing us to a hidden gem—and we have to share the finding with you! Sweet Pass Sculpture Park showcases a secret world of art hidden next door to the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, Trinity Groves, and the bank of the Trinity River in West Dallas.
This acre-sized park is dedicated to exhibiting contemporary projects from emerging and “mid-career” artists and provides a free and accessible platform for thought-provoking, interactive art experiences. With a solid commitment to experimentation and community engagement, Sweet Pass Sculpture Park has become a captivating destination for art enthusiasts and the general public.
As unapologetic lovers of stone, we are captivated by the innovative use of this timeless material at Sweet Pass, which features an impressive array of sculptures and installations that beautifully incorporate stone in their design. Each sculpture demonstrates the stone’s versatility and artistic potential as a medium from marble to granite, limestone to slate.
Sweet Pass catalyzes collaboration, fostering connections between artists, students, and esteemed institutions. Over the years, the park has collaborated with over 100 local and international artists and organizations like the Dallas Boys & Girls Club, the West Dallas Chamber of Commerce, the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Dallas Museum of Art, and our new friends over at TACA. These collaborations have brought diverse perspectives and an enriching artistic dialogue to the park.
Additionally, Sweet Pass has garnered recognition and support from the Nasher Sculpture Center, the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture, and even an NEA Grant in partnership with Wassaic Projects in New York. Such accolades highlight the park’s commitment to artistic excellence and its positive impact on the art community.
