Last year, Pease Park Conservancy partnered with the Austin Art in Public Places Program to bring local artist Yareth Fernandez and her piece, Geospace, to the park. The event was a huge success, connecting public art with the environment and patrons of the park. Visitors interacted with the piece and spoke with the artist who was on site.
The 2017 Request for Proposals has just been released. The Art in Public Places Program is seeking proposals from professional visual artists or artist teams to design and display short-term, exterior artworks in City-owned sites. New this year, the TEMPO 2017 program will culminate in a temporary public art festival, which will be a registered group exhibition during East Austin Studio Tour in November.
The deadline for application is March 16, 2017. For more information, visit the TEMPO website.
