In 2017, the Keller Public Arts Board (“Board”) implemented a rotating public art program for outdoor sculptures in the newly updated Old Town Keller West area. A $1,500 honorarium is available for five pieces selected by the Board for the eigth year of the program.

The City of Keller invested over $4 million in improvements for the Old Town location, including the addition of approximately 170 parking spaces; construction of a linear pedestrian promenade; improved streetscaping and landscaping; addition of outdoor seating and community areas; and installation of 11 concrete sculpture pads. Old Town is home to an eclectic blend of restaurants and small businesses that, in combination with the public improvements, attract a variety of visitors and provide great exposure for art in the area.

For 2024, the Public Arts Board will select up to 5 sculptures for a two-year exhibit beginning in June 2024 and will host the sixth Keller Art Walk event on October 26, 2024. Artwork will be for sale for the duration of the exhibit with a 25% commission collected by the City of Keller.
