Stars in Dripping Springs Call for Art

Application Deadline: May 24, 2024

Please enable JavaScript in your browser to complete this form.
The stars at night remain big and bright deep in the heart of Texas thanks to the hard work and dedication of Texas Hill Country residents and businesses. In 2014, Dripping Springs was the first city in Texas to be designated as an International Dark Sky Community, and the sixth one in the world. Since then, the city, its residents and business partners have diligently maintained that unique distinction. There are a lot of benefits to being in a dark sky community. We're extremely proud of our beautiful night sky and view of the stars, it's one of the things that makes Dripping Springs the best little city in Texas! Thus, we would like to celebrate our night skies with this exciting ‘Stars of Dripping Springs’ Public Art Project.

 

We encourage each artist to use their imagination in creating a star design that adds your unique perspective on Dripping Springs and incorporates one of the following categories:

  • Night sky
  • Nature/Wildflowers/Birding
  • Music/Film Friendly Community
  • General Dripping Springs
  • Texas Culture/History

Please review all details and requirements in this document.

This is a long application with several sections. Review the information needed and fill out the application when you have everything ready.
