Visionary Voices, a new speaker series featuring celebrated public artists from across the country. The series aims to encourage thoughtful consideration of the role of public art and its relationship to public spaces, examining the often blurred line between art and architecture. The lectures will also highlight the participating artists’ bodies of work and will offer a sneak peek of commissions they are executing for the City.
Massachusetts-based artist Janet Echelman is a recipient of the Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award in Visual Arts, honoring “the greatest innovators in America today.” Her works, sited around the globe, combine ancient craft and modern technology.
Visionary Voices is presented by the City of Austin Economic Development department and TxA.
