What is Tempo 2D?
The City of Austin’s Art in Public Places (AIPP) program of the Cultural Arts Division, Economic Development Department, requested proposals from professional visual artists or artist teams to design, fabricate, install and de-install short-term or time-based exterior artworks in City-owned sites within Austin Public Library Department property. TEMPO expanded to include wall-based artwork. Through the TEMPO 2D program, twelve local artists were selected to create hand-painted murals, vinyl adhesive artwork, and fiber art at locations across Austin including public parks, the Austin Bergstrom International Airport, and other high-profile locales. In October 2019, ten new artists will create all new works.
Our site for tempo 2D is 4801 Bolm Road.
After researching and learning about the history of Govalle area and the east side of Austin, we surely think it’s important that we include the community in our art. This is our first public art and we believe that public art has a responsibility to engage with the community.
We would love to invite the community to our collage portraits workshop. We are planning to incorporate collage portraits from the workshop into our mural design to represent the creative community (if you leave us a photo release form).
