City selects People’s Choice art project
The City of Austin has announced its People’s Choice selection from the 2014 People’s Gallery exhibition. Mountain Laurel Mandala II, a sculpture by Shalena White (2014), has been added to the permanent art collection at City Hall. Mountain Laurel Mandala II is a site-specific installation that consists of Texas mountain laurel seeds and sewing pins arranged in Fibonacci spiral sequences. Mountain Laurel Mandala II is currently displayed on the second floor of City Hall as part of the 2015 People’s Gallery exhibition. Each year, a purchase is made from the annual exhibition to help build a permanent collection of art for City Hall. The exhibition may be viewed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with extended hours Thursday evenings for City Council meetings.
