Personifying the "Garland Spirit"
Designers of Downtown Garland Station used simulated movement to highlight the city's progressive spirit. A functional clock tower, oversized for dramatic effect, stands sentinel over the station, recalling the many clock towers once common in rail stations and town squares around the nation. Paving stones set in wavy designs also reflect the Native American watering holes in the area.
At the adjacent bus transit center, artist William C. Culbertson portrayed the city's development in his totem pole-like artwork titled Garland Column Tower, a rough timeline of the city's history. A sculpted woman, standing proudly atop the work of art, is named "Garland Spirit," a tribute to how the city has faced times of challenge and change during its 100-plus years of existence.
