Congress Ave. experiences turned into a work of art

A project combining art and science to capture the essence of Austin and its iconic Congress Avenue.

You might describe it as a psychedelic topographical map.

Local artist Jennifer Chenoweth and the Downtown Austin Alliance surveyed about 400 Austinites about their experiences on Congress Avenue.

They assigned each answer a mood and a color then used them to create a map.

The data from the surveys is being used to develop plans for the future of Congress Avenue.

Check with the Public Works Department for public meetings and plans in September.
