Take a quick trip around Arlington and collect pictures of you and loved ones with the newest public art project: the 20 stars of Texas in the Star of Texas Challenge.

The project, which officially unveiled in November 2015, celebrates the city’s brand and each star is positioned in various places around town, where each artist applied their interpretation of what makes Arlington the American Dream City.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to snap and upload your photos with all 20 stars and you will receive a special edition “Star of Texas” t-shirt and FREE admission to the Vivian Maier: Lost and Found exhibit at the Arlington Museum of Art.

PLUS: Once a month, starting August 2016, one grand prize winner will have the chance to win the Arlington Convention & Visitors Bureau Grand Prize package, which includes Six Flags Over Texas tickets, Hurricane Harbor tickets, Rangers Ballpark Tours, food at Piranha Killer Sushi and Mellow Mushroom + more.

Official Rules:

  • Post your photos to the Star of Texas Challenge Facebook page, tweet them at @CityofArlington or post on the City’s Instagram (cityofarlington) using the hashtags #AmericanDreamCity and #StarOfTexas.
  • You can upload all 20 photos as you go or post them all at once. It’s up to you! We’ll keep track of your name if you want to do them one at a time!
  • In order to win the package of prizes you must take your picture in front of all 20 stars.
