City seeks input on University Hills public art project

Tuesday, July 7, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

The city of Austin is seeking public input on an art project to be installed at the University Hills Branch library in East Austin. Art in Public Places, which is a program of the Cultural Arts Division of the city’s Economic Development Department, plans to commission an artist or team of artists to design artwork for the library’s exterior, near the front entrance. Art in Public Places is hosting two upcoming meetings at which the public is invited to help city staff develop goals for the project. Following these meetings, staff anticipates releasing a Request for Qualifications in August. The first meeting will be held this Saturday, July 11, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. A follow-up meeting will be held July 22, 7-8 p.m. Both meetings will take place at the library, 4721 Loyola Lane.
