Here are some of my favorite selections from The People’s Gallery exhibit at Austin City Hall last night. The Opening Reception was fun with tons of local art on display. Thank you Austin for opening up City Hall, feeding us snacks, and allowing us to photograph the art and the building.
The Round Rock ArtSpace had their First Thursday Art Reception this evening, and it featured Día de los Muertos art and artists. My favorite painting was called “Bella Catrina” by Jennifer Estes. Also, if you find yourself near Round Rock this Saturday, there will be a celebration downtown in the evening.
I parked at Austin City Hall this afternoon to attend some more SXSW events. The events were nothing to write home about, but the flowers, sunshine, and architecture at City Hall were great!
Austin City Hall is a unique piece of architecture, both inside and out.. Here are some photos from tonight’s wanderings.
Today’s mission was to go and enjoy The People’s Gallery at Austin City Hall. From the literature, “Each year the Cultural Arts Division of the Economic Development Department presents the People’s Gallery exhibition, designed to showcase regional artistic endeavors and to encourage public dialogue, understanding, and enjoyment of the visual arts. Since 2005, Austin City Hall has been an annual showcase for works by Austin area artists.” It was super enjoyable to see all of the great artwork on display.
