Austin Art in Public Places Program says
“The Public Sentiment Campaign” by lead artist Jennifer Chenoweth and content strategist Dorothy Johnson sets out to illustrate people’s memories and stories of regularly visited parks. A series of four brightly colored aluminum signage markers are mounted with printed whimsical “notices” and collected personal quotes. They are displayed in different areas of parklands across Austin that correspond to their “notices.” This project investigates the meaning of shared life experiences and gives a context on how we connect with visual concepts, each other, and ourselves. Images of the publicly displayed posters will be shared through social media @xyzatlas.

The TEMPO project launched in spring of 2015 with an open call to Austin-area artists to submit proposals for temporary artwork on City-owned sites. The goal of the City’s Art in Public Places program is to commission art projects of redeeming quality that advance the public’s understanding of visual art and enhance the aesthetic quality of public places. Temporary public artworks can enrich the civic dialogue, engage public spaces in a unique way, and attract new artists to participate in the City’s public art program. The TEMPO program allows artists to explore a range of themes suitable for outdoor environments and provides the opportunity for innovative, thought-provoking artwork that effects the way people experience their environment. Funding for this project comes from Hotel Occupancy Tax revenues as a way to cultivate tourism activity around the arts in Austin.
