Drawing Lines: Explorations of Place
A new artist-driven community-based public arts project is underway here in Austin, Texas this spring. According to the Drawing Lines website this display "explores how art itself, as a process, can be part of the conversation around Austin’s newly restructured 10-1 political system and examines the role of contemporary culture in the transition of place."

Drawing Lines: Explorations of Place is an experiential and immersive exhibition bringing together 10 commissioned place-specific public art projects for the first time under one roof to reflect on the new 10-1 political structure, each district’s dynamic cultural life and thus, the city itself. Capturing an historic moment in Austin’s evolution as a city through each of the artists' year-long residency, the exhibition provides a snapshot into the first year of this new council structure and the newly drawn geographic communities it is charged to represent.
The exhibition public opening party is Friday, April 1st from 7-10p. Gallery hours are April 2-10 from noon to 5pm. http://www.drawinglinesaustin.com/
