 Art In Public Places Information: The City of Austin was the first municipality in Texas to make a commitment to include works of art in construction projects when it established the Art in Public Places program in 1985. Austin currently boasts over 200 public artworks in over 150 facilities/locations, ranging from outdoor sculptures to architectural detailing, and the collection continues to grow. The AIPP program has commissioned 175 artists to date, with over 70% of the artworks in the collection coming from Austin area artists. The program values the perspectives that both local and non-local artists can provide within an artistic context and offers established and emerging artists an opportunity to contribute to our ever-evolving cityscape. The program enhances Austin as a top cultural and artistic destination in Texas and beyond. For three decades, AIPP artists have successfully completed projects that have become cornerstones of both community-based and nationally recognized identity.
