The first annual Bee Cave Buzzfest, an interactive art and light festival that took place in December, was named one of the top 100 finalists for an international design award.
The public art installation was one of six Texas nominees for a 2021 CODA Award, awarded annually to those who have successfully incorporated art into interior, architectural or public spaces, according to a press release from the June 21 of the organization. The awards are provided by CODAworx, which is an online platform that connects artists with municipalities and developers who commission works of art.
Buzzfest was selected by a panel of 18 jurors among the top 100 nominees out of nearly 400 entries. The event was hosted by the local nonprofit Bee Cave Arts Foundation and took place over three nights at Hill Country Galleria to feature interactive light installations and choreographed performances. Community impact journal previously reported that the three-day event drew over 22,000 attendees.
Public voting to select the winners will be open until June 30. The two artworks that receive the most votes will win a CODA People’s Choice Award and will be announced in the August issue of Interior design magazine.
“When artists, designers, industry resources and clients work together, places turn into spectacular spaces,” said Toni Sikes, CEO of CODAworx, in the statement.
