People’s Gallery puts out call for artists

Tuesday, January 25, 2022 by Tai Moses

Each year, the city’s Economic Development Department puts on a curated exhibit at City Hall called the People’s Gallery. The free exhibit, which displays over 100 pieces of artwork in a variety of mediums by Austin-area artists, draws more than 200,000 visitors a year. As Sylnovia Holt-Rabb, acting director of the EDD, explained in a news release, the exhibit “is designed to showcase local creativity and to encourage understanding and enjoyment of visual art. City Hall is a symbol of public dialogue and we are proud to bring visual elements that spark discussion around the impact of the arts in Austin each year.” All artists who live in or have an art studio in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis or Williamson counties are welcome to apply. Applications will be accepted until Feb. 22. Apply online at
