The city’s Art in Public Places program has selected metal artist Courtney Bee Peterson, mosaicist Jeff Grauzer and digital artist Michael Mares Mendoza to create a permanent public artwork for the Burnet Road corridor. The team is conducting public outreach in the Burnet community “to pinpoint the artwork’s location and design to ensure that it reflects and honors the Burnet neighborhood,” according to the announcement. The artists invite residents to share their thoughts and ideas for the artwork, which is one of 11 corridor art projects currently in progress across the city. Assistant City Manager Gina Fiandaca said, “Public art is a powerful expression of a neighborhood’s character and history, and we are proud to be involved in supporting local artists in creating public celebrations of local culture.”
