Calling artists

Wednesday, August 1, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

Austin’s Cultural Arts Division is seeking applicants for 2019’s People’s Gallery exhibition, which showcases works by local artists in a variety of styles throughout the first three floors of Austin City Hall. In addition, the city is also seeking temporary artwork installations – with a $3,000 budget – for display in the second-floor stairwell leading to the office of Mayor Steve Adler. The programs are open to artists 18 and older who live or work in Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Hays, Travis or Williamson counties, with applications available online and due by Oct. 17. An artist information meeting about the programs will take place Aug. 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the Boards and Commissions Room at City Hall. The arts programs were created to showcase local artists to the roughly 210,000 visitors each year at City Hall. Selected pieces will go on display in late February 2019 and remain through the end of the year.
