Frisco Public Art Program
Art in the Atrium 14
Exhibition Call for Artists
The mission of the City of Frisco Public Art Program is to enrich Frisco’s artistic vitality and cultural vibrancy by bringing dynamic contemporary art to a broad audience of residents and visitors.
In keeping with that mission, the Public Art Board initiated Frisco’s ongoing Art in the Atrium series at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center. This facility, with its open atrium design and tall limestone walls, has proven to be an exceptional venue for showcasing the artistic excellence of our local and regional artists.
The City of Frisco seeks current, 2-Dimensional works of art by artists from Frisco and the surrounding area for the 14th installment of Art in the Atrium. The exhibition showcases regional artistic endeavors and encourages public dialogue, understanding and enjoyment of visual art. The program’s goal is to reflect the artistic excellence in and around Frisco and to promote the City’s cultural and economic initiatives.
Art in the Atrium 14 is scheduled for Monday, April 10, 2017 through Friday, September 8, 2017.
The George A. Purefoy Municipal Center (City Hall) 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.

Visual Artists who live or work in and around the North Texas area and are at least 18 years old, are invited to submit no more than five (5) images of original artwork available for loan beginning Thursday, March 23, 2017 through Monday, September 11, 2017.

Artwork on display at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center may be for sale by the artist loaning the artwork provided that any artwork sold remains on display until the conclusion of the exhibition. However, early removal may be approved by the Public Art Coordinator with prior written consent. The artist lending artwork for an exhibition must provide a suitable replacement, subject to the Public Art Coordinator’s approval, for artwork removed from an exhibition before its conclusion.
