Gregory Beck was selected to create an artwork that reflects the values of the Fort Worth Police Department and the communities it serves.

Pieces of Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow, a multi-faceted painting by local artist Gregory Beck, is the latest commissioned artwork to be added to the Fort Worth Public Art Collection. Located at the East Division Police Station, the vibrant artwork is inspired by the spirit of East Fort Worth and its ties to, and influences on, the city.

The dedication is scheduled for 9 a.m. Nov. 16 at 5650 E. Lancaster Ave. The public is invited.

The work, comprised of 27 individual pieces and eight large-scale panels, illustrates a puzzle in progress. Each piece of the puzzle is inspired by East Fort Worth’s historic relevance and cultural diversity. Showing the evolution of the community in Handley-Meadowbrook, the artwork references signature elements of the area, such as the Interurban Railway that ran from Fort Worth to Lake Erie, and the Pike Drive-In Theater, as well as portraits of present-day community members and Fort Worth police officers.

The artwork is made up of water-jet-cut aluminum sheets and automotive paint, totaling 900 layers of paint, and is approximately 10 feet high and 80 feet long.
