Museums and Cultural Affairs Department Call to Artists for City Hall Buildings

The Museums and Cultural Affairs Department (MCAD) is issuing a call to local artists to create a public collection of artwork that recognizes the artistic talent and cultural diversity in El Paso.

The artwork will then be placed in City buildings as part of the 2016 Public Art Purchase Program.

The artwork will become part of the City of El Paso Art Collection and will be installed at the following City buildings: City 1, 300 N. Campbell; City 2, 218 N. Campbell; and City 3, 801 Texas Ave.

Interested artists must submit an application online by June 30 through the Artist Registry CaFÉ website.

More information may be found on the Public Art Program webpage of the Museum and Cultural Affairs Department websitehttps://mcad.elpasotexas.gov/public-art or by calling (915) 212-1776.

The Public Art Program for the City of El Paso was adopted by City Council in 2006 in an effort to integrate public artworks throughout the City of El Paso.
