There are many things I find peculiar about Austin. One of these things is that October has been named a “cultural month,” but Austin Museum Day and the East Austin Studio Tour take place in September and November, respectively.
But perhaps the culture they are talking about is not visual art, but rather theatre or film — or that gaming industry they so love to lump into anything about “creative arts”.
Like I said, they are many things I find peculiar about Austin.
Really I am here to make an introduction.
The EAST catalog is making its way into the hands of the public and I hope you will notice an ad for EAST AUSTIN ARTS.
This is an association of people who have been in the city for a time and who love the arts. We’re devoted and want to bring the east side to the attention of the city. We want to raise the bar of the quality of contemporary arts in Austin. We want to bring Austin arts to the attention of the world. We’re talking seriously about art and hope you will too.
