Visitor Tips and News About Giant Spider Sculpture
I missed the sculpture the first time I went by the intersection. I had to backtrack to find it. I was expecting the sculpture to be visible from the road. The park edges are not maintained, so the weeds obstruct the view of the "art" from the road.[charlie, 07/27/2012]
Not every giant creature is visible from a car. Sometimes you have to walk back a ways for your reward. Try to forget that that's always the way people get eaten by giant creatures in Hollywood movies.
This twenty-three foot high giant spider, named Arachnophilla, is located at the Mueller Southwest Greenway in the Mueller development at the old airport. The sculptor is Dixie Friend Gay, an artist from Houston.[Julie Dean, 11/20/2009]
