Drawing Lines

ArtPlace Project 

History: Austin has had at-large representation on its city council. 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.

Collaborators: GO collaborative team, Fisterra Studio, Public City, Austin Creative Alliance, and the city of Austin

Project: Collaborate with ten artists working within each district to create a work that expresses a collective understanding of Austin’s diverse communities.The project ran from Fall 2014 – Fall 2015, culminating in public exhibitions. Artists’ projects and the City of Austin’s GIS-based cultural asset maps were featured.
