City seeking artist for library project

Monday, September 14, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Austin’s Art in Public Places program is looking for an artist to create a “permanent exterior public artwork” for the University Hills Branch Library. According to the city’s website, “Professional visual artists who live and work in the Austin metropolitan area, including Travis, Williamson, Bastrop, Caldwell, and Hays counties, are eligible to apply. The total budget for this project is $55,000. The application deadline is Oct. 15 at 5 p.m. This commission coincides with renovations at the library, including a parking lot expansion, sidewalk improvements and landscape enhancements. The final artwork will be located at an exterior location near the front entrance. It is expected that the selected artist will “engage with the local community to develop the design of the artwork.” Information and applications are available online here.
