“PDA (Public Display of Art) in Lubbock” stands as a unique project in the region, showcasing site-specific public art pieces for a period of two years. After that time, new art pieces are carefully selected to replace the existing ones, ensuring an ever-changing viewing experience at various intersections throughout the city.
This project is made possible through collaboration among the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDot), Tornado Industrial/Arts, and the Lubbock Arts Alliance. TxDot provides the concrete pads for the artworks, while Tornado Gallery manages logistics, including installation and removal of each piece.
The Arts Alliance plays a crucial role in facilitating the selection of public art pieces, contracting with the chosen artists, covering artist fees and shipping expenses, seeking additional funding, and promoting the program to both residents and visitors.
