Austin Art Boards 2016? Yes: Billboards with art on them. Not art that’s advertising anything, but art for its own glorious sake – as hosted by Reagan Outdoor Advertising all over town. From 256 artworks submitted by local artists this year, 30 were chosen as, let’s say, sufficiently awesome for closer consideration. And, after that closer consideration, 10 of the 30 were judged so compelling that the judges were like, “Hells yeah, we want everybody to see these things!” But here at the Chronicle, we’re sharing all 30, the 10 winners going up on billboards and the 20 honorable mentions, in this very gallery – with congratulations to all involved.
