Artists invited to submit for TEMPO 2015
Art in Public Places seeks to commission temporary public artworks for the 2015 cycle of the TEMPO program. TEMPO is a program of the city’s Cultural Arts Division of the Economic Development Department. Professional visual artists and designers who live and work in Williamson, Travis, Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Burnet and Blanco counties are eligible to apply. Multiple commissions will be awarded. The budget for artwork ranges from $3,000 to $10,000 for each commissioned work. Artists may select from a list of city-owned sites, including parkland, libraries and right of way, and craft a proposal for a short-term artwork or time-based performance that responds to that specific site. Selected artworks will be installed for varying periods of time between July and December 2015. Proposals must be submitted by 5 p.m. April 24, through www.PublicArtist.org, an online application system. To read the complete Request for Proposals, go here.
