Austin-based artists, designers, architects, and landscape architects are invited to participate in a public Call for Ideas for installations for the Fourth Annual Creek Show 2017. This annual, light-based art exhibit, held every November on Waller Creek, draws more than 10,000 Austinites and visitors to downtown during a ten-night event designed to bring awareness to the Conservancy’s future revitalization and transformation of Waller Creek. 

Artist submissions will be open to the public for the last two weeks in January. New and emerging Austin-based artists and designers are encouraged to apply. Entries may be submitted from January 15-31.

The Creek Show 2017 Selection Committee will notify finalists in March. The selected designers will receive an honorarium for the production of their proposed work. Click below for complete details regarding requirements, budget, and timeline.


"Creek Show continues to delight and inspire our community," Ingrid Spencer, Creek Show Artistic Director, said. "As the selection committee thought about how to expand this phenomenal community program we knew we needed to tap into diverse, creative talent across Austin."
