the east austin studio tour spans two weekends every november. this year, nearly 200 private studios and exhibition spaces opened to the public, all within the boundaries of i35, 183, 290, and the lake. check the map (pdf) for full pinhead effect.
a mixed-medium piece at the delta millworks buidling, springdale @ 5th. i assume some people tour studios looking to buy, but for me it's all about acknowledging / remembering the insane amount of creative work that goes on every day in east austin, behind doors and in buildings that typically go unnoticed.
like here at metal authority hq, a single-lot facility at 14th and cedar. this place is 1.1 miles from my house according to google maps and i'd never seen / heard of it before.
