Happy birthday the Austin Art in Public Places Program, which is celebrating 30 years of spectacular and surprising public art all around Austin! Grab a friend and come to commemorate this milestone with some soon-to-be-announced special guests November 12, 5-7pm, at one of our city’s most iconic public art pieces: Open Room Austin (which may be better known as the giant picnic table near the Seaholm Power Plant).
Just like all the program’s public art in Austin, the event is free and open to the public! Fun for the entire family, find a spot at the pop-up party’s picnic table, grab a refreshment from participating local businesses all while taking in a tune.
For 30 years, AIPP has provided Austin with a unique identity that makes our town special. From Iron Wave to Nightwing, AIPP has commissioned over 200 public art pieces – many which you’ve seen, but might not have realized it – in all 10 of Austin’s districts! AIPP’s mission to bring art to the people isn’t just a hope, it’s a reality. Learn more about AIPP programs, art and our upcoming exhibitions here.
