Rock the Porch Returns to Plum Creek


Are you ready to rock, Central Texas? For the second year, Plum Creek’s Rock the Porch public art initiative will return to Kyle, Texas with a fresh look and a rockin’ attitude. Much like last year, Rock the Porch will manifest in the creation of 20 sculptural and artistic rocking chairs designed by individuals, artists and groups from across Central Texas. Then in October, these chairs will be placed within the Plum Creek neighborhood and the greater city of Kyle to beautify the area and spark conversations. The Call for Artists for Rock the Porch is currently open – and we’re looking for creative minds to apply! The application period is open until August 15th, but don’t wait, apply today.

This year Rock the Porch is all about the music. We’re looking for designs inspired by the music that rocks you – whether it’s a genre of music, or a particular song, artist or instrument. Design a chair that pays homage to The Beatles, or one that looks like a piano. Or create a chair filled with lyrics from your favorite songs. We can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

Get Rocking — Apply Today!

You have plenty of time to rock those creative juices and come up with something worth talking about. If you’d like to be a part of Rock the Porch, we want to hear from you! We will pick 20 artists in mid-August and your chair is due October 11th at Plum Creek’s annual Hootenanny on the Hill fall festival. At Hootenanny, there will be a vote for the best chair and the designer will be given $500 to donate to a local charity of their choice from a predetermined list.
