X MARKS THE ART aims to activate underutilized and vacant downtown properties by introducing new creative, dynamic, visually aesthetic installations and happenings downtown. The program was launched in August 2011 in response to District 1 City Councilman Diego Bernal’s desire to create a downtown environment rich in opportunities for locals and visitors alike to engage in cultural activities without needing to leave the heart of the city center.
X MARKS THE ART is committed to highlighting both emerging and established local contemporary artists. Over the past four years the program has worked with over 40 artists to create over 50 installations, impacting 19 downtown properties.
