The new 10-1 art system

Thursday, March 31, 2016 by Nora Ankrum

The “Drawing Lines: Exploration of Place” exhibit opens Friday with a showcase of artwork commissioned from artists representing each City Council district. Each work of art is intended to represent the unique culture of its district, and the exhibit – described as “experiential and immersive” – is intended to “assist district residents in identifying their communities’ cultural assets,” as described on the project website. The next phase, intended to reflect Council’s new 10-1 structure, will involve a collaboration among the 10 artists, who will create one piece of artwork expressing “the collective understanding of Austin’s diverse communities.” The project is a partnership among the city’s Cultural Arts Division, the GO Collaborative, Public City and Fisterra Studio. The exhibit, located in the McKean-Eilers building at 323 Congress Ave., will run through April 10 and be available for viewing each day from noon to 5 p.m.
