Art can inspire, energize and induce a positive emotional response. For this reason, we are committed to featuring more visual art into the total experience of our customers, visitors and attendees. In keeping with the City of Austin’s Art in Public Places Program (AIPP), several iconic pieces were commissioned as part of the capital improvement budget for the original construction of the Austin Convention Center and subsequent additions. In addition to the public art collection, the Austin Convention Center Department began acquiring additional works by some of the region’s most accomplished artists, which can be found in various spots throughout the facility. Keep your eyes peeled for any of these exceptional works during your next visit!
Selected Serigraphs from Coronado Studios’ Serié Project Master Printer and Artist Sam Z. Coronado (1946 – 2013) advocated the awareness of cultural diversity in our community by advancing the fine art of serigraphy. He strove to create a solid platform that allowed for both established and emerging Latino artists to reach a bigger audience, and in turn, empower their words and creativity to spread to a greater world.
