Georgetown has public art around the Square, in parks, on Southwestern University’s campus, at the public library, and elsewhere.
The City of Georgetown Arts & Culture Board borrows, purchases, or commissions murals, sculptures, paintings, and even utility box wraps. The meaning and awareness of place and space created by these works extend the creative experience that visitors to the City enjoy. Visit the pages in the Arts Gallery for all the latest murals, sculptures, and other public art: arts.georgetown.org/art/public-art/
1 Congress Avenue, Austin
Austin is home to the largest urban bat colony in North America. These Mexican free-tailed bats hide out under the Ann W. Richards Congress Bridge, waiting to take flight during the summer months at dusk. For the best seats in the house, go early to the Austin-American Statesmen parking lot and plot a blanket in your chosen spot in the grass. For updates and approximate emergence times, please call Bat Conservation International’s home office number 512-327-9721.
