Art in Public Places celebrates ‘Golden Afternoon’
Friday, April 15, 2016 by Nora Ankrum
Austin’s newest piece of public art, called “Golden Afternoon,” is an “Alice in Wonderland”-themed ode to Texas wildflowers created by Urban Matter Inc. To celebrate its recent installation in the Seaholm parking garage, the city’s Art in Public Places program will be holding a dedication ceremony at Seaholm Plaza on Friday, April 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. Urban Matter artists Rick Lin and Shagun Singh will be in attendance to discuss the artwork, Mad Hatter snacks and beverages will be served, and wildflower seed packets will be given away for free. The Harry Ransom Center will be on hand with “activity books” befitting the theme, and the Austin Public Library’s mobile library will be there as well.
