  • Brief Description

    The City of Austin Economic Development Department's Art in Public Places Program seeks to commission a professional visual artist, or artist team, to design and install a permanent exterior mosaic piece for Comal Pocket Park. Located at 300 Comal Street, Austin, Texas 78702, Comal Pocket Park is nestled in east central Austin.

    Today, the neighborhood is in a stage of redevelopment with new residential buildings occurring along 4th Street and beyond. In addition, the Housing Authority City of Austin (HACA) is progressing on Chalmers South and will continue the development of their existing property in the future. The park’s renovation hopes to meet the needs of the ever-changing population while maintaining a connection to the community’s storied history.
