  9. Richard A. Anderson says:

    My favorite, though not necessarily the most important, is Jonathan Borofsky’s Walking to the Sky at the Nasher Sculpture Center. Whether viewed from afar or in close proximity, the piece never fails to inspire, intrigue, and otherwise fascinate me.

  10. Lara Strother says:

    I would agree Kahn’s Kimbell. Honorable mentions FW Mondern Art building by Ando and the public art installation, Avenue of Light on Lancaster Avenue. Also the painting The Swimming Hole by Thomas Eakins owned by the Amon Carter is a personal fav.

    “Important” – tricky word. : )

    I WOULD say Balloon Flower, Jeff Koons…but that is gone. (sob)

    Now I vote on the Matthew Barney sculpture in the DMA’s collection. They are very lucky to have that….too bad it’s in the back. ALWAYS in the back. Ugh.
