CEDAR PARK, TX — The City of Cedar Park’s CPAtlas.com has a new feature that showcases and gives a virtual tour of art installations throughout the community dubbed "The Art in Cedar Park" story map, officials said Friday.

The Art in Cedar Park story map was created using geographic information systems (GIS) technology to map the locations of various works of art, including murals, sculptures and gallery spaces, combined with photographs, exact address locations and descriptions that link to more information on the City of Cedar Park website, officials explained. Most of the works featured on the Art in Cedar Park story map — such as the Cedar Park Sculpture Garden — are projects of the City’s Parks, Arts and Community Enrichment (PACE) Board.

City officials noted Art in Cedar Park is the latest installment in the story maps library on CPAtlas.com, where users may also view the Cedar Park Economic Development story map and the Cedar Park, Texas History story map. CPAtlas.com was created by staff of the Applications Division of the City of Cedar Park’s Department of Information Services. In addition to story maps, CPAtlas.com includes various interactive maps with layers, a data portal and a map library.

To view the PACE story map, visit the Cedar Park Atlas page, and click on Story Maps, then click on the Art in Cedar Park story map.

The PACE Board is an advisory board to the Cedar Park City Council comprising council appointees. Its purpose is to assist with the development and promotion of a comprehensive cultural and recreational enrichment program for the city, with projects are funded through revenues generated by Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) and donations to the Public Art Fund made by water customers via their water bills.
