Lake Nessy Honored by Public Art Network's Year in Review!



This sculpture serves as a playful welcoming terminus to Mueller’s Lake Park in Austin, Texas.  The 16-foot-high, 30-foot-long serpent-like sculpture was inspired by mythological water creatures, using handmade tiles to give the feeling of barnacles and other sea life, adding textual distinction from the smooth, glossy, glass “scales.”

Specific consideration for young visitors led to a design using materials that withstand play while providing safety.
