Dances on the Prairie (2001)

Dances on the Prairie is a 30 minute documentary that explores the creation of the “Texas Sculpture Garden,” the largest permanent sculpture collection ever assembled to celebrate the work of contemporary Texas artists.  The film documents, over a period of two years, the development of the garden, from the unique vision that inspired it to it’s opening celebration.

Dances features a group of diverse and talented artists who discuss influences on their work, ponder what it means to be a Texas Artist, and who provide insight into the creative process.  The film uses the garden to explore the participative nature of art, the vital role the art plays in the lives of both artists and the audience and the direct impact it can have on a community.

Dances on the Prairie aired on Texas PBS and was screened at the Dallas Video Festival and the Deep Ellum Film Festival.
