Art City Austin and the City's Love for Artists

When the idea of art-loving cities comes up, Austin might be one of the last places that you would consider to embrace arts and culture; however, the reality is that artists of all kinds are appreciated in the Texas capital and are well celebrated through the Art City Austin festival.

Austin loves its artists, and artists love Austin. Locals can see just how cozy this love affair is when Art Alliance Austin hosts the Art City Austin festival this weekend. Actually, festival might not be the preferred nomenclature, because Art City Austin is more interested in being a big block party that connects the community with the artists that call it home.

A lot of action will be packed into the confines of Cesar Chavez Street and the 2nd Street District: an art fair of works from all over the country, the People’s Gallery at City Hall, food trailers, beer and cocktails, and live music.
