Crow Collection of Asian Art and Crescent Real Estate Collaborate to Bring New Asian Sculpture Garden to Trammell Crow Center

New installations of Asian Sculpture and Traditional Japanese Landscaping to Serve as Outdoor Gallery Within the Arts District

The Crow Collection of Asian Art and Crescent Real Estate Holdings, LLC announce the beginning of work on the future Crow Asian Sculpture Garden, a new outdoor gallery surrounding the Trammell Crow Center. The interior and exterior of the office building, which sits within the Dallas Arts District, will be used to expand the footprint of the Crow Collection of Asian Art, featuring traditional Japanese landscaping, new Asian art acquisitions and additional works from the museum’s collection.

“I have always considered the Crow Collection a museum without walls. In Asia, art and the environment coexist naturally. This garden will be a place Dallas Arts District visitors to find art and Asia in unexpected places,” said Trammell Crow, president of the Crow Family Foundation. “I am grateful to our partners at Crescent for giving us the perfect canvas for expansion.”

The vision and plans for the Asian Sculpture Garden will be unveiled in early spring when landscaping is expected to begin. To make way for the new art acquisitions and upcoming landscaping, the Crow Collection’s European sculpture pieces, such as Bourdelle’s Horse for Alvear Monument and Rodin’s Meditation that are currently on display at the Trammell Crow Center, will be re-installed at the Old Parkland campus Saturday (March 5).
