Home to the Dallas Cowboys, AT&T Stadium also boasts the Dallas Cowboys Art Collection – 16 monumental, site-specific installations integrated into prominent locations throughout the stadium. For Starfield, MacArthur Foundation Fellow Teresita Fernández placed hundreds of mirrored acrylic cubes on sheets of black laminate to reflect passers-by and the surrounding scenery. When viewing this artwork from a distance, viewers and the artwork merge together to create a new landscape. Characterized by an interest in perception and the psychology of looking, Fernández’s sculptures present spectacular illusions that evoke natural phenomena and engage audiences in immersive art experiences and conceptual way-finding. As Gallery Director, I worked closely with the artist, architects, and installation crew to coordinate the artwork production and installation.
