Katy Texas News
Posted March 1, 2011
Keep Katy Beautiful and the City of Katy are pleased to announce the arrival of â€œThe Landingâ€, a 14-foot bronze sculpture featuring 5 large Canadian geese arriving on the Katy Prairie. Preparation of the site will begin soon anticipating an April 2011 installation. This beautiful entrance to our city has been four years in the planning. KKB has met with landscape architects, artist and the Texas Department of Transportation to create an entrance area reflective of the history and character of the City of Katy.
â€œThe Landingâ€ will be located at the intersection of Katy Mills Drive and Highway 90, the East entrance into the city where the current Welcome to Katy sign is located. The current sign will be relocated to Katy City Park at the corner of Avenue D and Franz Road.
This unique original artwork was designed by Edd Hayes, a well known bronze sculptor, whose work includes Dr. Michael DeBakey, multiple War Memorials as well as the bronze deer scattered throughout the Woodlands.
This project of Keep Katy Beautiful, 2007 winner of the Governorâ€™s Community Achievement Award is funded through Keep Texas Beautiful by the Texas Department of Transportation.
