About Opening

Artworks are on display throughout the first three floors of City Hall and visitors are welcome to take self-guided tours. Artist presentations will begin at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers. The City of Austin is proud to present The People's Gallery at City Hall. This free, annual exhibition is designed to showcase regional artists and to encourage public dialog, understanding, and enjoyment of visual art. The works presented span a range of sensibilities and materials while holding to a high standard of quality in the field.  Exhibition guides are available on the first three floors of City Hall so that visitors may do a self-guided tour.

About Program

Since 1985, Art in Public Places has commissioned over 200 public artworks throughout Austin with the goal of inspiring residents, fostering neighborhood identity, creating jobs for artists, and keeping our city unique. The City of Austin was the first municipality in Texas to make a commitment to include works of art in construction projects. By ordinance, 2% of budgets for capital improvement projects are allocated to commission or purchase art for that site. Austin's Public Art Collection is found at sites such as the airport, convention center, libraries, parks, police stations, recreation centers, and streetscapes.

    The art was great and hearing the artists speak added another dimension to the viewing. As far as meeting people, it may have been my fault for not approaching anyone, but it didn't seem to offer the type of experience where it is natural to talk to people next to you. It was kind of spread out.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
