Brief Description

Austin Parks Foundation is seeking proposals from artists or artist teams for the commission of a site-specific outdoor mural to be installed on an existing blank wall
underneath the Barton Springs Bridge as part of Austin Parks Foundation’s work to revitalize the Zilker Train. The subject wall runs underneath of the bridge and is on
the west side of the river. This will be a focal point of the new train route. APF is particularly interested in site-specific artwork with potential to: brand the space, introduce color, serve as a backdrop for photos, and provide visual interest to the space. The piece must be durable and suitable for the outdoors with the ability to withstand interaction with the public. APF is working with the City of Austin’s Art in Public Places Program for this project as the wall we will be using is on public land.

All proposal materials must be submitted electronically by 5:00pm CST on April 23, 2021
