This courtyard symbolizes the Earth’s story carved in stone, forming the Balcones Escarpment – entwined with the human story, both written and oral, weaving the tapestry of our collective past. Engraved on the stones and planter are an excerpt from O. Henry’s Austin-based story “Art and the Bronco,” quotes from survivors of the Battle of the Alamo, a Cuahuiltecan Indian prayer, and a conceptual description of the courtyard engraved in Braille.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
