placing routes is a public art initiative based in austin, texas that pairs local artists and business owners.  simply put, the business owner has a wall/space and the artist has an idea/concept. from there, a mural, a sculpture, a piece of art is born.  of course, the relationships that form and the process that occurs are more complex than that.

our hope is to build an economy of relationships by…

* creating/conjuring/making

* expanding the idea of “artist” by inviting the
creative potential of any/all interested community members

* acting as a conduit between artists and business owners

* blurring the boundaries of commercial / urban space and communal / community space

* weaving a web between the land / city scape and those who move within it
