Celebrating Reception: Saturday May 10th 7-9pm
On view: February 26 – June 9
Come join the Art Alliance for an evening in Stacey Park at the GloWave Sculpture, and art installation by artist Melissa Borrell. GloWave is an undulating form that references the water that flows in Blunn Creek. The piece is illuminated in the dark with blue light. The GloWave is part of the TEMPO projects commissioned by the City of Austin Art in Public Places.
Temporary public art plays an important role in attracting new and emerging artists to the City’s public art program, enriches the civic dialogue, and engages public space in a unique way. The TEMPO program allows artists to explore a range of themes suitable for the outdoor environment and provide the opportunity for innovative, thought-provoking artwork that impacts the way people experience their environment.
