Opportunities open for visual artists

Wednesday, May 10, 2023 by Elizabeth Pagano

The city’s Art in Public Places Program (AIPP) is putting out a call to visual artists for a handful of opportunities with budgets that range from $64,000 to $3.5 million. The projects, which will be explained further at the AIPP open house event this Saturday, include three separate commissions on the Bergstrom Spur Urban Trail that is open statewide, projects at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center and airport open to local artists, and a $3.5 million nationwide call for artists. (More details on the projects as well as information in Spanish can be found here.) “Public art adds so much value to our city. From beautifying spaces and telling our community’s shared story, to creating jobs for local artists and making the enjoyment of art available to all,” said Sylnovia Holt-Rabb, director for the Economic Development Department that manages AIPP, in a statement to the press. “These opportunities support our continuous efforts to grow creative experiences for residents, businesses and tourists alike.”
