Georgian Acres seeks an artist

Friday, May 1, 2020 by Tai Moses

Works from the city’s Art in Public Places program may be seen and enjoyed all over Austin: in libraries and public parks, police stations and rec centers, the airport and convention center, and many other public places. Now AIPP is looking for an artist – or a team of artists – to create an artwork with a budget of $34,000, that “inspires imagination and represents the diverse cultures of the Georgian Acres Neighborhood Park community,” according to the announcement. Local artists who are at least 18 years old are welcome to apply, although the selection committee is particularly interested in individuals who are “familiar with the history and heritage of the Georgian Acres community and artists able to interact with the community in languages other than English.” Learn more and apply here by 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 25. AIPP Project Manager Alex Irrera can answer any questions at alex.irrera@austintexas.gov or (512)974-7860.
