The City is inviting artists from North Texas to submit two-dimensional artwork as possible exhibits in the upcoming 9th Annual Art in the Atrium. The City of Frisco’s Art in the Atrium offers an ideal opportunity for artists eager to share their works of art and vision with the community. Selected pieces will be displayed throughout the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center, to be appreciated by visitors to City Hall and the Frisco Public Library.
Artists are asked to submit their artwork by September 5, 2014. A committee will evaluate the pieces and then make selections. The Frisco Public Art Board will review and notify artists in October and pieces will be on display through April 3, 2015. Artists and art organizations may submit up to five images for consideration. All submissions must comply with specific guidelines.
Bob Moroch, Public Art Board Member, said each year Art in the Atrium encourages local and area artists to share their work with the community. “Artists young and old are invited to present their talent. As a member of the Public Art Board, I look forward to reviewing the wide variety of art created by our friends and neighbors.”
The Art in the Atrium program is aimed at promoting the City of Frisco’s cultural and economic initiatives and is part of the City’s continuing effort to promote appreciation for the arts and highlight talented artists living in and around Frisco.
Dudley Raymond, Public Art Manager, said the City of Frisco looks forward to this showing each year. “Staff receives countless compliments from the public on how art enhances the atmosphere and brings forth a creative spirit to our municipal center.”

The George A. Purefoy Municipal Complex does not function as a gallery or museum in its ability to exhibit any and all content within its business setting. While the City of Frisco respects the freedom of expression in visual arts, the City reserves the right to remove or relocate artwork at its sole discretion.
