The City of Austin Art in Public Places (AIPP) program seeks to commission four (4) local artists or artist teams to create permanent public artwork for stations related to fire and emergency medical services. The commissioned artwork should reflect the mission of the Austin Fire Department and Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services (AFD/EMS) “to create safer communities through prevention, preparedness, and effective emergency response.” Artworks should be integrated into the spaces of the stations. A range of materials and conceptual approaches are welcome! A budget of $365,000 will be split across 4 AFD/EMS stations in Austin.This AIPP project opportunity is reserved for those meeting the following eligibility: *Practicing visual artists or artist teams; *At least 18 years of age; and *Live and work in the Austin metropolitan area, which includes Travis, Williamson, Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Burnet and Blanco counties.
