I promise, I will get back to the last part of the Utah trip, as well as, finish my Colorado posts, but before that I want to share a cool place we discovered on a day trip to Austin earlier this week. It is perfect for a photo-filled blog post created on my phone.
From the website:
Welcome to the HOPE Outdoor Gallery, our community paint park located at 11th & Baylor St. in downtown Austin, TX. This educational project is managed by the non-profit HOPE Events and was ofﬁcially launched in March 2011 with the help of contemporary artist Shepard Fairey. It is the only paint park of its kind in the USA and was developed to provide muralists, street artists, arts education classes and community groups the opportunity to display large scale art pieces driven by inspirational, positive & educational messaging. Check out the launch video HERE.
This failed condo construction project has become a place for self-expression and some really beautiful art, but is sadly marred by the casual spray paint jockey who can’t be bothered to take his or her trash with them.
