This is a 30 foot tall eyeball. Smack dab in the middle of downtown Dallas. It’s by artist Tony Tasset, originally created for a temporary exhibition in Chicago — now part of an exhibition co-sponsored by the Nasher Sculpture Center and the swanky five-star Joule Hotel. (ahem, we are not staying there) An example of the private arts investment reshaping Dallas. You run into all kinds of this cool stuff all over town.

All Things Considered Host Melissa Block and Senior Producer Matt Martinez are broadcasting from member station KERA in Dallas, TX. Follow along as they report on big changes in this super-sized state.

Pleased to announce our newest book arts acquisition: 
The Deep by Kevin Steele.
From the artist’s website:  
"The Deep is a tribute to maritime folklore and tradition developed over centuries of nautical exploration. The ocean, which remains immense and mysterious in our own time, was all the more enchanting and terrifying to sailors in an era when being at sea meant a profound isolation from civilization in oft uncharted waters and dangerous passages.

The Deep is a circular accordion pop-up book which unfolds to an oversized eight-point compass rose. The compass, arguably the sailor’s most valuable instrument, not only enables accurate navigation but brings good luck, ensuring safe passage home and protecting against a watery end in the Deep.”

Visit the artist’s website.
If you want to take a look in person just stop by the desk in our reading room and our librarians will  probably offer a bit of assistance.  I particularly recommend getting a group together and stopping by since it is a great one to gather around. 

This may be the coolest thing I have ever seen!
