AIPP seeks to commission ten temporary public artworks for the 2018 cycle of the TEMPO program. Professional visual artists or artists teams who live and work in Williamson, Travis, Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Burnet, and Blanco counties are eligible to apply. The artwork budget for each of the ten commissions is a maximum of $10,000. Proposals will be accepted through Thursday March 15, 2018 at 5 PM.
One commission each will be awarded in ten of the City’s ten Council Districts. Artists may select from a list of City-owned sites in each district, including parkland, recreation centers and libraries, but must be flexible, as some works may be relocated to a different site within their chosen district, or to a different district altogether.
Artworks will be exhibited at sites across Austin during September, October and November. Artists will then reinstall the artworks at Edward Rendon Sr. park in District 3 for a public presentation of all the TEMPO 2018 artworks, as a registered group exhibition during the East Austin Studio Tour in November 2018.
Proposals must be submitted by Thursday March 15, 2018 at 5 PM CST through www.PublicArtist.org, an online application system. To view the complete Request for Proposals, visit www.tinyurl.com/AustinAIPP.
