McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park
Scottsdale Public Art is working with Kristine Kollasch on a public art project for the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, located at 7301 East Indian Bend Road in Scottsdale, Arizona.
This 30-acre park has been a Scottsdale staple for more than 40 years and has approximately 1 million visitors a year. The park features trains, a carousel, a playground, a model railroad building, and a railroad museum. The bunkhouse, located near the parking lot and entrance to the park, is being replaced with a new 8,000-square-foot, indoor, multipurpose area focused on train-themed play and an approximately 5,000-square-foot, outdoor splashpad play area. The city of Scottsdale and Scottdale Public Art have identified that the artwork will be placed outside near this new indoor multipurpose area.
Kollasch will be designing, engineering, fabricating, and installing exterior artwork at the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park.
