Austin Art Needs No Museum

Austin Art Needs No Museum

Sometimes, I have to join in.

While Austin offers some great opportunities for art museum-enjoyment - I love the Blanton Museum on the UT campus, for instance - it's not quite the museum destination that Houston and Dallas are. When it comes to making art weird, though, Austin brings it. We have famous graffiti all over town, neighbors who open their homes to us once a year to display their talents, billboards to celebrate artists of various media, and really cool art installations. 

January 2018 was a big month for art announcements in Austin. We longtime Austinites may be feeling melancholy about the HOPE Outdoor Gallery, known as, "Graffiti Park," being demolished and parts of it moved to a new home at Carson Creek Ranch, near the airport. The park was a great place to snap iconic Austin photos. Hopefully, its new home will support its continued growth and contribution to the community. In happier news, we can all get excited about the latest installation by artist Patrick Dougherty at Pease Park. Stickworks, crafted from invasive plant-species by the artist and a team of volunteers, won't last forever. Go check it out while it stands!

Besides the sanctioned and contained art, there are plenty of other treasures hidden throughout the city - knitted poles and signs, the occasional floating tree, melting life-sized toy soldiers. Many times, I am compelled to pull the car over and explore, because I've seen something delightfully weird and inviting - something that reminds me why I love Austin.
