A New Exhibit: “Explorations of Place” in Austin
Drawing Lines culminates with Explorations of Place, an experiential and immersive exhibition bringing 10 commissioned place-specific public art projects together for the first time under one roof to reflect on Austin’s new 10-1 political structure, each district’s dynamic cultural life and thus, the city itself. Capturing a historic moment in the city’s evolution through each of the artists’ year-long residency, the exhibition provides a snapshot into the first year of this new council structure and the newly drawn geographic communities it is charged to represent.
Housed in an historic building on Congress Avenue, the location intentionally brings the exhibition to one of Austin’s most defining places where, for generations, culture, community and civic life have intersected to shape the city.” The first project of its kind and scale in Austin, the selected artists were commissioned to co-create a public art project with the residents in their district throughout a one-year residency.
Although we provide the utmost luxury at Oxford at Tech Ridge in Austin, Texas, we realize that you need to get out and socialize with those in your surrounding community. This event gives you the chance to do just that! Don’t hesitate to attend today!
