Austin City Hall’s People’s Gallery 2022 Selection


The People’s Gallery is designed to showcase the work of regional artists and to encourage public dialogue, understanding, and enjoyment of visual art in a community space. The curated pieces represent the Austin arts community’s excellence and cultural diversity, while promoting the City’s cultural and economic initiatives. The Economic Development Department opened a call for artworks to Austin-area artists, galleries, museums, and arts organizations in January. This year, approximately 1,000 entries were submitted by more than 300 local artists.

The 2022 selection panelists included arts professionals: Alejandra Almuelle (ceramic sculptor), Valerie Fowler (artist), and Ryan Runcie (artist and educator).

Visitors to City Hall can view the People’s Gallery during regular building hours, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Friday. Admission is always free. The 2022 exhibition will remain on display through May 1, 2024.
