The Graffiti Wall as it's know has been a source of joy for all friends coming in from out of town. It's a part of Austin and celebrates the arts and creativity of our City. Teens come with cans of spray paint to express themselves.

Allowing the community and public to "decorate" an abandoned area is such a unique use of vacant property. It's enjoyable to see feelings and drawings expressed as well as seeing people photograph what they enjoy. Keep Austin Weird indeed!

The HOPE gallery was an amazing experience for young and old... unfortunately, it lost its battle with the city and the desire for more condos, so it has been moved to outside of Austin proper.

This active creative site is still attracting people wanting to see many people’s graffiti contributions. It is now fenced and it appears a new Hope gallery site will be close to Carson Creek Ranch.

We heard about this place and we had to go check it out. It was a warm, January day. It was a lot of people out and about. People were selling their handmade jewelry (I picked up a pretty dope ring). Some people were even...More

Cool selection of graffiti art close to downtown Austin. Free admission and you can add your own graffiti to the walls. I would be cautious about bringing small children here as the hill gets very steep and there’s a ton of broken objects/trash laying around.

Yes, walls of graffiti, actually, terraced up the hill. No admission, but a photographer, Jules, is something of a documentarian of the place and he sells photos of the work there on site. So, take a bit of extra money and... More
