Dedication of Every Place a History - Austin Art In Public Places' newest sculpture to be dedicated on 11/12/11

We invite you to come to the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Animal Services Center on its first day of operations.

Saturday, 11/12/11
10:30 - 11:00 a.m.
7201 Levander Loop

We will hold a short dedication of Brad Goldberg's work, Every Place a History, with comments from the artist. Please come and celebrate this wonderful addition to the City of Austin's Art in Public Places collection. Bring your families, neighbors and friends.

Artist Brad Goldberg created a 30-foot diameter low limestone spiral of sculptural seating enveloping the walkway to the main entrance of the Animal Center as the Art in Public Places feature of the site. The arcs of the spiral pay homage to the architectural and cultural history of the property, which was once home to the segregated Texas Blind, Deaf and Orphan School.

The 2-foot diameter granite disks are embedded in the paving with sandblasted imagery that traces the history of the site from its earliest geologic origins of being a shallow sea to more recent history that constitutes this neighborhood’s memory.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
