Public Arts Board to select next round of Old Town art

Post Date:01/25/2019 10:00 AM

The Old Town Keller Rotating Sculpture Program will bring some fresh artwork to Old Town this summer as the Public Arts Board is set to select up to six new pieces to install within a six-block footprint south of Keller Parkway and west of Main Street, where they’ll spend the next two years further enhancing the area’s eclectic blend of restaurants, retail and office space.

“We started this program in 2017 and have been so happy with the results. The new pieces, officially showcased at the Keller Art Walk each fall, bring new life to Old Town every year," Public Arts Board Chairwoman Brenda Wyatt said.

A $1,500 honorarium shall be awarded for each of the selected pieces, and one Best in Show winner shall be awarded an additional $500. All sculptures must be the original work of a Texas artist, family appropriate, pose no risk to public safety, be made of materials that can withstand the harsh Texas weather and require no maintenance once installed.

Selected pieces will also be made available for sale to the public. Further details and applications, due via the Call for Entry website by March 22, are available online at www.cityofkeller.com/publicarts. For more information, call 817-743-4000.
