Demolished Texas House Will Be Buried For Art’s Sake

DALLAS (August 27, 2013)--A demolished house in a Dallas neighborhood will serve as unusual on-the-scene public artwork representing a neighborhood's past, present and future.

The Nasher Sculpture Center says the "Buried House" piece will be part of a Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity project.

Crews tore down the abandoned home Monday in the Oak Cliff neighborhood, the same day that center officials announced the artwork planned by Spanish artist Lara Almarcegui, who plans to bury the rubble on the property as a "free space" for reflection on the neighborhood.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers will later build a new house on the site.

It's one of 10 commissions for the Nasher's 10th anniversary exhibition called Nasher XChange.

The artwork will be available for viewing Oct. 19 to Feb. 16, 2014.
