The Cedar Park PACE Board offers a gallery space in the Cedar Park Public Library (located at 550 Discovery Blvd.) and in the City Council Chambers (450 Cypress Creek Rd. Bldg. 4) where local artists can exhibit their two-dimensional works of art. Displaying your work in the Cedar Park Library or the Council Chambers is a great opportunity to showcase your art to a wide audience. The library hosts an average of over 800 visitors on any given day and the City Council Chambers is the location for a variety of public meetings which attract a wide variety of viewers.
Become an exciting part of Cedar Park by submitting your work for a year-long period of display in the Cedar Park Community Sculpture Garden.
The City’s Parks, Arts, and Community Enrichment (PACE) Advisory Board will accept entries of large scale, free standing and interactive sculptures and welcomes all artists - professional, amateur and student. Each artist may submit up to 3 pieces for consideration. All works must be of original design and execution and must be available for installation during the designated installation period (Oct. 1-7, 2020). At the end of the loan period, the city will consider seeking public input regarding the selection of a piece to purchase for inclusion as part of the City’s permanent collection.

Public Art Fund
In October 2009, the City Council created the Public Art program. The goals of the program are to promote and encourage public art programs, further the development, awareness and interest in the visual arts, create an enhanced visual environment, and promote tourism and economic vitality.
The program will be funded using a "percent for the arts" mechanism in which 1% of eligible Capital Improvement Projects' (CIP) budget is dedicated to public art, a portion of the revenues generated by the Hotel Occupancy Tax, and by donation to the Public Art Fund made by water customers on their water bills (beginning January 1, 2010).
