The Nasher Sculpture Center is marking its 10th anniversary this year by commissioning 10 sculptures to be placed throughout Dallas.

Officials of the museum announced Wednesday that the exhibition, called "Nasher XChange," will be in place from Oct. 19 through Feb. 16. The museum marks its 10th anniversary Oct. 20.

Museum Director Jeremy Strick says the project helps put art "into the hands, hearts and minds of the citizens of Dallas."

He says the works will be revealed in the coming months.

Alfredo Jaar of New York City is among the artists chosen to create a sculpture for the exhibit. He says the project helps expand the audience for contemporary art.

The Nasher Sculpture Center is located in the Arts District of on the northern fringe of downtown Dallas.
