WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

The Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture is hoping to transform one part of the city into art.

Twelve acres of land sit empty in the heart of Wichita Falls between Kell East and Kell West next to the old Attebury building. The Alliance for Arts and Culture is hoping to do something about it.

On Tuesday, the group went to city council to present their possible project, Nexus Square, which would have four main areas.

The first would be an open-air space for events that include concerts and picnics. The second would address a food truck area.

There would also be a formal garden for sculptures and a playscape for children.

Executive Director Margie Reese said this is a project they would like to do because it would highlight the local artists and continue to bring art to the forefront of Wichita Falls.

She said it is in the early stages. They have no timeline on when construction could begin or how much it would cost.

However, she wanted to tell city council about it to give them the option to be part of the possible project moving forward.

The Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture will continue to work on the details in the coming weeks.
