February 13,2017 - Fort Worth, TX - The Fort Worth Public Art Council unanimously approved Gregory Beck's design Pieces of the Past, Present & Future for the East Lancaster Police Department exterior wall mural. The project is an extension of artist Jack Mackie’s Public Art Master Plan for the East Lancaster Corridor (2009); which recommended artwork at the Fort Worth Police Department’s East Division Police Station as part of the City's ongoing efforts to artistically enhance our great City. Fabrication will begin upon completion of the final contractual agreements and we look forward to creating this intricately illustrated salute to the history and diverse culture of East Fort Worth. Following multiple community meetings, gathering input from the enthusiastic and dedicated community including local historians, photographers, City Council representatives, the police department and area supporters we have assembled a great collection of images that represent the Past, Present and Future of this vital Fort Worth area. My thanks goes out to the Arts Council for their professional and caring approach to developing this idea from a vision to a soon-to-be-realized installation.
