Seaholm EcoDistrict Art Walk

April 6, 8:00am - 9:30am CDT. Hosted at Austin Central Library

About this FieldTrip

Creative placemaking and placekeeping are trending concepts - get the inside story on spaces in and around the Seaholm EcoDistrict influenced by public art. We will visit a few of the public art sculptures in the Seaholm EcoDistrict redevelopment area. The area has undergone restoration and adaptive re-use of the distinctive Art Deco power plant. Listen first-hand how art and culture collide in public space as Sue Lambe and Marjorie Flanagan of Austin Art in Public Places share stories with FieldTrip participants.

Some of the sculptures we’ll visit: Spin and Array by metalsmith Judd Graham, Power Picket by Nader Tehrani and Daniel Gallagher, Crullers by Sharon Engelstein, Wander by Chris Gannon, Chadwick Wood, and Brockett Davidson, CAW by Christian Moeller, Golden Afternoon by Rick Lin and Shagun Singh, and Accordion 16 by Sten Lex, among others.

Please note: We are not meeting inside the Central Library. We will be meeting outside the 2nd St entrance of the new library.
