Welcome to Art al Fresco. What is Art al Fresco? It is an outdoor, or "fresh air" exhibit of Boerne's public art.
Boerne's first Art al Fresco Public Art Exhibition opened in the fall of 2015. A temporary exhibit, Art al Fresco is an "art on loan" program consisting of 9 chosen pieces which incorporate a variety of materials including welded steel, bronze, blown glass, and others.
Created by the City of Boerne and juried by the Public Art Competition Committee, Art al Fresco is a walkable adventure for visitors and residents and is located throughout the city's historic downtown-known as Boerne's Hill Country Mile-and along Boerne's Trail system.
The sculptures are for sale and the City has purchased two of the sculptures for its permanent collection. DANCER 2015 was honored as "Boerne's Choice" after receiving the most public votes. It and COMET & RAVEN:MESSENGER FROM AFAR are now part of Boerne's permanent collection of 10 sculptures.
Art al Fresco is sponsored by the City of Boerne and Boerne's Hill Country Mile in partnership with The Boerne Convention and Visitors Bureau. The program is the result of years of collaboration between the City of Boerne and the local arts community.
Special thanks to everyone involved for your vision and dedication to the arts and Boerne's quality of life.
