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.
An opening reception kicks-off the new exhibit each year in February and the exhibit remains on display for one year. You can vote for The People's Choice, an artwork that will be purchased from the artist (if available) and added to the City Hall permanent collection. Voting is open through October 30th; instructions are in the exhibition guides available on the 1st & 2nd floors; ballots are in the 2nd floor lobby. Please visit the exhibition before submitting your final vote.
