Historically, Austin has had at-large representation on its city council. However, in November 2014 the city will transition to a system where council members represent specific districts. This new political landscape presents many opportunities and challenges to the city as well as its citizens. This is where Drawing Lines comes in.
Through this project, Fisterra Studio will collaborate with ten artists working within each district to create a work that expresses a collective understanding of Austin’s diverse communities. The project will run from Fall 2014 – Fall 2015, culminating in public exhibitions. Artists’ projects and the City of Austin’s GIS-based cultural asset maps will be featured.
