09 Mar ‘The Landing’ to feature bronze sculpture
Keep Katy Beautiful and the City of Katy are pleased to announce the arrival of “The Landing,” a 14 foot bronze sculpture featuring five large Canadian geese arriving on the Katy Prairie.
“Preparation of the site will begin soon anticipating an April installation. This beautiful entrance to our city has been four years in the planning,” said Jaime Wolman of KKB. “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.”
“The Landing” 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 Governor’s Community Achievement Award is funded through Keep Texas Beautiful by the Texas Department of Transportation.
