for contest, create your tour of austIn art
Attention, art-loving Austinites. The City of Austin’s Art in Public Places has thrown down the gauntlet for you to create your own public art virtual tour. Now through July 31, the program is accepting virtual tour submissions using the free Gowalla smart-phone location application. Your mission is to venture to the wilds of Austin, choose your favorite five to 10 public art pieces, create a tour (called a “trip”), and then submit it through the Gowalla website for the chance to have your tour selected as the official route for the 2010 annual Public Art Crawl on Oct. 2. For submission instructions, visit www.gowalla.com.
AT RIGHT: Map out some choice sites of public art in Austin using the free smart-phone app Gowalla, and your route could be chosen for the 20 0 Public Art Crawl in October.
