Bastrop, Texas is a unique blend of old and new. Nestled on the banks of the Colorado River, in the heart of the Lost Pines region, the Bastrop historic district offers a delightful selection of shops, restaurants and inns. Nearby neighborhoods have over 100 historic homes, many beautifully restored. A Texas Main Street City since 2007, Bastrop was also named a Distinctive Destination in 2010 by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in recognition of the City’s work to preserve its historic character, promote heritage tourism and extend its welcome. Bastrop is a designated Cultural Arts District by the Texas Art Commission.
The Bastrop Art in Public Places Board is soliciting concept design proposals for a ‘Culture Walk’ to be located in Bastrop (the “Project”). This highly visible and accessible multi-purpose public place will be a new addition to the ongoing public art projects that promote Bastrop as an art destination for the residents of Bastrop County and Central Texas, as well as, visitors to the area.
The Project is a public space that will be a “Culture Walk” which tells a story of the cultures, traditions, ethnic backgrounds and perspectives that represent the strength and resiliency of the Bastrop community. The Project will be both inspirational and contemplative to celebrate the smart, hardworking, strong and compassionate individuals who collectively represent an enduring human spirit of triumph over hardship – A place to – think, talk and dream.
