Art makes a city.
Think of world’s most amazing cities. Each of them has a strong arts community that supports local artists and places art among its civic virtues.
This weekend the Austin Art Alliance offers you one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to support local fine arts with Art City Austin, April 14-15.
It’s a block party and a festival, all devoted to promoting, selling and inspiring art. You’ll see jewelry from Sun Chan, paintings from John Booth, ceramics from Daniel Bennett, sculpture from Yoshi Aoki and more. More than 190 artists were selected from almost 1,000 applicants to be part of Art City Austin, so look for some incredible work.
Kids are invited to make their own art at the Kid’s Block on Cesar Chavez and the 1st Street bridge. About 10 local nonprofits sponsor these booths, so the philanthropy community is wonderfully represented.
In fact, most of Austin’s arts organizations, performing and fine arts, are nonprofits. So enjoying Art City Austin is a great way to have fun, get inspired and give back all at the same time. See you there.
