Austin City Hall

Austin City Hall is one of the more architecturally unique buildings in the area, and it was designed to specifically reflect the playfulness of the city’s culture. But there’s more inside than just offices, meeting rooms and council chambers. Scattered throughout its halls are pieces of regional artwork that collectively make up the People’s Gallery, an annual exhibition. This year’s collection has over 125 different works made by 96 artists. In true government fashion, there’s a vote involved: each year, the public is invited to cast a ballot for their three favorite pieces. The winning People’s Choice piece is kept in the City’s permanent collection.
