CITY HALL PEOPLE’S GALLERY OPEN THIS YEAR!
For the first time, Austin City Hall and the People’s Gallery exhibition will be open for festival go-ers. Designed to showcase regional artistic endeavors and to encourage public dialogue, understanding, and enjoyment of the visual arts, the exhibition is presented each year by the Cultural Arts Division of the Economic Growth & Redevelopment Services Office. The goal of the program is to present a series of exhibitions that reflect the artistic excellence and cultural diversity of Austin and promote the City’s cultural and economic initiatives. The works exhibited are all by Austin-based artists and can be purchased directly through the artists.
PARTICIPATE IN PUBLIC ART BY BUILDING PEACE CRANES AND WISHING FOR PUBLIC SPACE IN THE FUTURE CITY!
In partnership with Creative Action, more than 1,000 origami Peace Cranes will be created during Art City Austin to complete a sculptural installation in alley #111 as part of the 20ft WIDE exhibition opening the following weekend. Each Peace Crane maker, no matter the age, will include their wish for Austin’s public spaces, representing the collective action required to create the future city they desire.
ARTICULTURE DESIGNS AT ART CITY AUSTIN!
Articulture Designs will install living art throughout the festival site. Known for living walls, interior botanical design, and eye-popping event décor, for 2013 Articulture will also unveil a new living furniture line in the Collector’s Lounge.
WATCH SCULPTING IN-MOTION
Local Artists from Hatch Workshop will weld a sculpture from unusable bike part right before your eyes. This project is generously sponsored by Capital Metro.
The bicycle informed sculpture will later permanently reside at one of Austin’s world class bike facilities.
RIDE A SCREEN PRINTING MACHINE
San Anto Cultural Arts is a nonprofit arts organization committed to empowering our community through public art projects and our community newspaper, El Placazo. Our interactive printing press, nicknamed “El Espiritu de San Anto,” requires participants to ride it in order to create their very own one-of-a-kind, woodcut, t-shirts.
