Essentially, every art studio, gallery, etc in east Austin throws open their doors to the public and displays their works. It's a great pair of weekends for art nerds like me. However, as I've found out, small children don't appreciate a weekend filled with art tours as much as you might. So this year was a little limited.
But we did make it to one of our favorite EAST spots, which is essentially a home that hangs a bunch of art for two weekends. (And probably the rest of the year, but they don't let me walk around their house the rest of the year.)
Their home itself is interesting outside of the art. This is the kid's room, with some really neat paint drippings along the top of the walls.
And this is the living room, with paper or ceramic butterflies/clams/something on the wall:
And this is the front yard, with Tim Burton like yard art.
I've always believed that interesting people live in interesting homes — be them mid-century homes or otherwise. And the little peeks into other peoples' homes that EAST allows me only furthers that belief.
