AUSTIN (KXAN) — The hunt is on to find local artists to create the City of Austin’s next cultural landmark.
Three commissioned public art projects are up for grabs, so get your paintbrushes ready and start creating. This is a part of the Art in Public Places Project, which works to bring Austin artists together to document the city’s history and values with a fresh coat of paint.
The permanent works will go up on Brazos and 2nd Street at the Austin Convention Center parking garage’s exterior. Incorporating sustainable material is encouraged, as well as crafting a design that energizes the street corner.
The only eligibility requirement is to live in the Austin metropolitan area, which includes Travis, Williamson, Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Burnet, and Blanco counties.
The application deadline is Feb. 18 at 5 p.m.
There is an information meeting today from noon to 1 p.m. at the Cultural Arts Division offices at 201 E 2nd St.
