What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
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.

Established by the City in 1985, the Art in Public Places (AIPP) program offers local and national artists, both established and emerging, an opportunity to contribute to our ever-evolving cityscape. The program provides unique works of art for publically funded facilities and has been an integral part of Austin’s transformation into a top cultural and artistic destination in Texas and beyond. For three decades, AIPP artists have successfully completed projects that have become cornerstones of community identity.
