Brief Description

The City of Austin’s Art in Public Places (AIPP) program of the Cultural Arts Division, Economic Development Department, seeks qualifications from visual artists or artist teams to design, fabricate, install and de-install short-term mural artworks on pre-selected or artist-proposed City-owned sites. The budget for each mural will be between $2,000 and $7,000 contingent on the size and complexity of the project. Selected artists will develop a final project budget that includes all costs to create the mural such as costs of installation, removal, site restoration, permitting, and insurance. Artists and designers who live and work in Williamson, Travis, Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Burnet, and Blanco counties are eligible to apply. Special consideration will be given to artists with lived experience in the neighborhoods in which they are proposing artwork.
