Art City Austin, our community’s three-day art fair and festival, will return for its 67th year March 31 –April 2, 2017 at the Palmer Event Center. This historic event is a celebrated combination of street art and contemporary art from local and national artists maintaining its designation of Austin’s annual Art event of the year.
“Art City Austin consistently offers the community an exceptional visual arts experience,” said Art Alliance Austin Interim Executive Director, Jade Walker. “Our goal every year is to make this festival as dynamic and energetic as the hundreds of artists, volunteers, and patrons that make up the Art City Austin family.”
Organizers expect 125 individual artists from across the country to showcase their works on the beautiful festival grounds of the Palmer, plus an art fair inside the exhibition hall will welcome 20 galleries throughout Texas.
The Art City Austin festival grounds will also feature a number of exciting attractions including multiple art installations created by local artists and commissioned specifically for the occasion by Art Alliance Austin. Noteworthy artists this year include award-winning photographer Clifton Henri, Austin fine jewelry designer Haley Lebeuf, and Jay Long, a long-time Art City Austin artist.
