HI.

THANKS FOR JOINING US.

I'M YOUR HOST MARISA MONROY BOOSTER SHOTS ARE CRITICAL IN THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19 AND ITS VARIANTS.

SO IT'S GREAT NEWS THAT CHILDREN FIVE TO 11 YEARS OF AGE ARE NOW ELIGIBLE FOR THAT EXTRA BOOST OF PROTECTION.

THE CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION RECOMMENDS CHILDREN GET BOOSTERS AT LEAST FIVE MONTHS.

AFTER COMPLETING THE PRIMARY VACCINE SERIES, YOU CAN BRING YOUR KIDS TO AUSTIN PUBLIC HEALTH CLINICS FOR FREE BOOSTERS AND VACCINES BOOSTERS ARE AVAILABLE AT OLD SIMS ELEMENTARY.

AND AT BOTH SHOTS FOR TOTS CLINICS APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED FOR THE SHOTS FOR TOTS CLINICS, BUT NOT FOR THE WALK-IN CLINIC SITES.

VISIT AUSTIN, TEXAS.GOV/COVID FOR DATES AND TIMES.

YOU'RE INVITED TO TAKE PART IN A CONVERSATION, AMPLIFYING THE VOICES OF PEOPLE LIVING WITH DISABILITIES AND THEIR UNIQUE EXPERIENCES WITH POLICING IN AUSTIN.

A TOWN HALL WILL TAKE PLACE ON SATURDAY, JUNE 25TH FROM 10:00 AM TO 12:30 PM WITH DISCUSSION CENTERED AROUND BUILDING A GREATER KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF PEOPLE LIVING WITH DISABILITIES.

DURING THE RECENT GRAND REOPENING OF UNIVERSITY HILLS BRANCH LIBRARY, COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND ATTENDEES GOT THEIR FIRST PEAK AT A NEW 17 FOOT TALL PERMANENT ARTWORK COMMISSIONED BY ART AND PUBLIC PLACES.

WHEN I WAS WORKING ON THE CONCEPT FOR THIS PIECE, IT WAS IMPORTANT TO ME TO ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY.

AND WE CAME UP WITH THE CONCEPT OF GATHERING HANDWRITING SAMPLES FROM CITIZENS IN THE IMMEDIATE NEIGHBORHOOD.

PERSEVERANCE IS CREATED USING A CONTROLLED DEFAMATION FORGING PROCESS THAT I DEVELOPED.

I USE A VERY LARGE HYDRAULIC PRESS TO DEFORM SECTIONS OF TUBING, WHERE WE CREATE THESE UNDULATING FAILURE POINTS.

THE WAY THAT THIS PIECE DEMONSTRATES TOTAL STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY.

EVEN AFTER THESE REALLY INTENSE STRUCTURAL EVENTS OF FAILURE POINTS, BUCKLING AND GIVING AWAY THE PIECE IS STILL A COMPLETELY STOUT FOUNDATION.

AND I THINK THAT THAT IS A SOLID SYMBOL FOR A STRONG HISTORIC NEIGHBORHOOD OF OUR CITY.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THIS ARTWORK VISIT AUSTIN CREATES.COM.

THAT'S IT FOR THIS WEEK CITY VIEW.

THANK YOU FOR WATCHING AUSTIN.
