The park where the eyeball is located is gated, so you can't get up close and personal with the artwork.

Only a couple of blocks from the DART, nice area of town. Sits in a fenced area with AstroTurf.

Giant eyeball.

The eyeball now looks out from behind a fence next to the Joule Hotel in Dallas. The fence is tall but you can peer in between the bars and take a snap of the eyeball. Definitely a sight to see! (har)
