The Peoples Gallery: 2015

IMG_4100

Each year the City of Austin sponsors an exhibition called The People’s Gallery inside our City Hall building. The exhibition also includes a contest where visitors can vote for their three favorite pieces. The top vote-getter will be announced early next year and purchased by the city for their permanent collection. The contest ended in October, but the exhibition continues until January 7, 2016.

This year’s exhibition features works created by over 100 local artists. I recently visited City Hall (where has 2015 gone?), and thought that this is the best one yet. Here’s some of my favorites…we’ll see if one of these is chosen as The People’s Choice for 2015!
