Through the creative eyes of award-winning photographers, this project celebrates women who define beauty to include their abilities to boldly defy life’s challenges…
challenges which may shape their daily lifestyles, but which can’t override the strength and courage of each project model. That is the real definition of beauty!

From the Git-Go, art became an important element for the building and for the City. Art is everywhere in the building and the "Peoples' Gallery" really just means the inside of the building. Typically each local artist selected for the year's show submits a few works. Thanks to the work of Toni Cook and Lynn Myers, we will be able to display our complete Texas Bold Beauty exhibition of photographs. This is the first time a thematically unified exhibition of size has gone into the building and the curator is really excited to see it come together. And the exhibit will be up for a full year! We're aiming at 20 photographs and we have some concerns about timing. We need the digital images completed by the end of October and this means we have to accelerate our model recruitment. We'll need to prioritize speed over quality but we are doing multiple venues and you can replace one shot with a newer one. The reception is in late February and it draws 1,000 people including the mayor who speaks. Click the link to see a one minute time lapse video of the Gallery. And if you're in Austin, City Hall is open to the public.
