Proposals are now being accepted for Austin’s TEMPO 2018. Art in Public Places (AIPP), a program of the City of Austin’s Cultural Arts Division will commission ten outdoor projects for the City’s ten Council Districts. Now in its sixth year, the annual temporary public art exhibition will be on view during September, October and November and then be reinstalled together as a group exhibition during the East Austin Studio Tour. 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.
