|Scattered Light by Jim Campbell|
A spectacular new installation by renowned artist, Jim Campbell, entitled Scattered Light will draw visitors to the CenterPark Garden with its cascading grid of flickering light. The work, which was recently on view at Madison Square Park in New York City, creates the illusion of figurative images through its 3-D matrix of thousands of hanging light bulbs. It promises to be Dallas’ most photographed light display this holiday season.
Bells are ringing at NorthPark Center to encourage visitors to donate their spare change through The Salvation Army Kettle Campaign, which raises important funds for year-round programs at more than a dozen Salvation Army centers in North Texas. Make the holiday season a memorable one for those in need by giving presents, clothing and necessities through The Salvation Army Angel Tree. Choose an Angel from The Angel Tree, drop off your gift by December 9, and The Salvation Army will make your delivery in time for Christmas.
The unpredictable Scrooge Puppet Theatre and the “real” Santa Claus will be present throughout the season beginning the day after Thanksgiving. “Sights and Sounds of the Season” will fill the corridors with orchestral, choral, and dance performances by dozens of North Texas elementary, middle and high school students, adult groups and all-city choirs. Community groups from around North Texas will generate much of their yearly support, including The Trains at NorthPark benefitting the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, providing a home-away-from-home for families in need; the Wish Fountain benefitting the North Texas Food Bank and many others.
