Graceful Celebration of Diversity by Ender Martos
TEMPO 2019 temporary sculptures by local artists are now in place at seven Austin Public Library branches, including the celebrated Central Library. Each TEMPO 2019 artist will give a talk at 3:30 PM on consecutive Tuesdays in September and October at the library branch displaying their artwork. Each artist will speak about their work and about the inspiration and process for their TEMPO sculpture.
These artworks were commissioned through TEMPO, part of the City of Austin’s Art in Public Places (AIPP) program of the Cultural Arts Division, Economic Development Department. The TEMPO temporary public art program promotes tourism, cultivates curiosity, sparks imagination, and engages the community in a meaningful dialogue about public art in of the City of Austin. Artists are encouraged to create artworks that reflect the site where they exhibit their work, and design artwork that can be easily installed and de-installed.
