‘Common Waters’ artists selected

Wednesday, April 20, 2022 by Tai Moses

Local artists Rejina Thomas, Ruben Esquivel and Taylor Davis have been selected to create a floating wetland installation on the Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail and Lady Bird Lake this spring. The Common Waters installation “will explore themes of community, creativity, environment, and collaboration. It will incorporate artistic components as well as serve an ecological function,” according to a city news release. The installation is part of the trail’s Arts+Culture plan, a partnership with the Parks and Recreation Department, the city’s Art in Public Places program and the Trail Foundation. With the help of environmental artist Stacy Levy, the three artists will collaborate to design and test models for the temporary art installation. The completed piece will be unveiled at the Arts + Culture Celebration on May 14.
