Tuesday, May 21, 2019 was proclaimed “Lady of Georgetown” and “Colorful Georgetown” Day in a Mayoral Proclamation for the art students from Eastview High School who were selected to participate in the City of Georgetown’s Utility Box Art Project.
“Lady of Georgetown” by Mya Stoessel was selected by the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board for the utility box at the corner of 7th Street and Austin Avenue. “Colorful Georgetown” – a collaborative piece by Makenna Baylor, Cassidy Salyer, and Beti Wain – was selected for the utility box at the corner of 2nd Street and Austin Avenue.
Several pieces of student artwork were submitted for consideration to the Arts and Culture Board by Eastview High School art instructor, Jessica Sobhani, during an open call for artwork submissions for public art in Georgetown. The art students selected and the EVHS Art Department recognize the value of public art to the community and the City of Georgetown, and the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board are honored to add “Lady of Georgetown” and “Colorful Georgetown” to the City public art collection.
Artists are encouraged to submit their artwork during open calls throughout each year. For the latest news on open calls, please subscribe to the Arts and Culture newsletter by submitting your information on the arts.georgetown.org home page.
