Artist opportunity, but hurry




Think public art is an insiders' game? Many artists do, but it's the daunting complexity of the endeavor — working with contractors, and managing plans and paperwork — that keeps the same names on the lists. Here's a way to learn the ropes. Public Art San Antonio (PASA), is working with local artist Cruz Ortiz to recruit a team of local artists and designers to create installations for CUT AND PASTE, a downtown storefront exhibition organized by the City of San Antonio’s Department for Culture and Creative Development (formerly OCA, the Office of Cultural Affairs). CUT AND PASTE will be on view this fall and throughout the winter at vacant properties downtown. But hurry — the online application deadline is Tuesday, October 16 at 5 pm. Stipend for participating is $500.  For more info call PASA at (210) 207-1436 or visit
