I had a nice interview with the Art in Public Places team. They seem like they would be a good and creative group to work with. One interview question was: What are my favorite pieces of public art? I said the Picasso sculpture in Chicago as used in the Blues Brothers film. That made them laugh. I explained that I chose the Picasso because it is a dramatic example of a place of public art that draws the film narrative to it with speed, vigor, high art and humor. I also named the Stevie Ray Vaughn statue on Town Lake (which was conveniently visible from the interview room) because it embodies an interwoven story of Austin music and Stevie's wonderful contribution to it. Art in public places ideally functions as a magnet for meetings of diverse entities for multitudes of reasons bringing individual and group stories to the spot.
