Russell Smith is gone but never, never forgotten. Russell was one of the Dallas Morning News' most loved and respected arts critics; his worked touched many people in Dallas and beyond.
The goal is to honor Russell with a bench on the new Kiestwood Trail. Russell was an Oak Cliff boy and lived not far from where the trail is today--what better place for a bench with a sunset-view in his memory? (Although park dept. rules say it cannot be called a memorial. So, OK.)
