The City of Austin's Art in Public Places (AIPP) program acquires and maintains works of art for City facilities through commissions, donations and loans for the cultural enrichment of the Austin community.  AIPP is a program of the Cultural Arts Division within the City of Austin's Economic Development Department.

In 1985, the City of Austin became the first municipality in Texas to make a commitment to include works of art in construction projects.  By ordinance, 2% of eligible capital improvement project budgets are allocated to commission or purchase art for that site.  The AIPP Collection is found at sites such as the airport, convention center, libraries, parks, police stations, recreation centers, and streetscapes, enhancing public spaces for all residents and visitors to our City.
