Colony Park seeks artists

Wednesday, November 22, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano

Yesterday, Art in Public Places announced it will be commissioning a professional artist (or team) to create permanent public artwork for Colony Park District Park, which is located between Loyola and Decker lanes. According to a press release about the project, which has a budget of $39,500, “the park is being developed in partnership with Austin Parks Foundation and St. David’s Foundation, with planned improvements including a multi-purpose field, nature-based play area, pedestrian bridge and other amenities. The selected artwork will reflect the unique history and values of the neighborhood and serve as a visual marker to help identify Colony Park District Park.” The deadline for artists to apply is Jan. 4. Information about the project application process, which is open to artists 18 years or older who reside in Williamson, Travis, Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Burnet and Blanco counties (with some restrictions), can be found online here.
