Drawing Lines Project Holds Artist Information Sessions

October 21, 2014

The new Drawing Lines project being funded by ArtPlace has opened their call for nominations and is holding 2 artist information sessions for interested artists or artist teams.  The Drawing Lines project will explore Austin’s new citizen-driven, boundaries of place, and embeds artists in each of the ten newly drawn districts to co-create a place-specific public project with the residents of the district.

10 artists (or artist teams) will be selected for Drawings Lines over October / November 2014. The DL Project Team is currently accepting  nominations from arts organizations and the public through an online submission form until Tuesday, November 4th. A Project Advisory Team, composed of local community leaders and arts professionals, will guide the DL Project Team in selecting and placing artists within the districts. The selected artists (or artist teams) will be notified by the 3rd week in November.
