Red River Cultural District Placemaking

Public City was contracted by the City of Austin Economic Development Department Redevelopment Services to implement placemaking projects in the Red River Cultural District, a merchant in the Souly Austin Program.  The projects commissioned for the RRMA focused on the District Beautification, Identity and Connectedness. Through the addition of three place-based murals and a (pending) neon installation throughout the District focused on the cultural history of the district, its music legacy and the District’s welcoming ethos, these projects improve the aesthetic through visual interest as well as tell its story as a cultural destination for all.
