Austin City Hall is now hosting The People’s Gallery for 2018. Pieces by local artists are featured throughout the building, even in the stairwells. Visitors can vote for their top three favorites through October 26. Next year the City will purchase the winning artwork—the People’s Choice—to add to their permanent collection. The exhibition can be viewed through January 1, 2019 during regular City Hall business hours.
The 2017 People’s Choice winner was Blue by artist Vy Ngo. I’ve never picked the winning artwork yet. Here’s what caught my (obviously untrained) eye this year:
Key to the Highway (Freddy King) – Rick Steinburg
Vision Down Deep – Daniel Arredondo
Regal – Jonathan Muzacz
Chatting Books: Green Man, Scheherazade and Odin – Linda Anderson
Young Artists – Eve Larson
Imprints – Monica Mohnot
Lakshmi’s Owl – Flip Solomon
Blunn Creek From Above – Valerie Fowler
Moment of Truth – Kyle Stuart
