Art in Public Places commissioned several artists to create permanent murals for a newly constructed wall on the perimeter of the Holly Street Power Plant. Me Barrio, one of the seven murals created for the wall, was created by pre-teen students at the Metz Recreation Center as part special classes where the students learned art appreciation and mural painting.
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.
