MASS Alley Cat Project Looses Feral Artworks in East Austin

Inspired by Gordon Matta-Clark, feral cats and New Urbanism, a new project will place art in East Austin’s overgrown back alleys alongside trumpet vines, scrapped cars, graffiti-covered fences, and the occasional pomegranate tree.  To The Alley Cat Project, these spaces present a latent potential for reclamation and recognition through artistic interventions. MASS Gallery has used money from an Idea Fund grant to commission 12 site-specific works by Texas-based and out-of-state artists that will remain on site for one year. The locations — back fences, back walls and backyard trees — were generously donated for the duration of the project by property owners in the neighborhood.
