Location: 1101 Baylor St, Austin, TX 78703
NOTE: This location will close in 2018 and the outdoor gallery will move to Carson Creek Ranch near the Austin airport. That’s a bit of a drag, because that puts the gallery a little ways outside of Austin proper. But it should hopefully alleviate the parking nightmare provided by the current location.
The HOPE Outdoor Gallery claims to be the only street art gallery of its kind in the US, providing plenty of mural space for street artists, muralists, art education classes and community groups to spray paint to their hearts’ content.
It’s current location will boast a semi decent view of the city if you ascend to the top. In addition to the traffic snarls noted above, the location also gets pretty muddy after a mild rain, so if you plan to visit before it closes, dress accordingly. The art is changing all the time (even once the new location opens, I assume), so you’ll probably never see the same scene twice!
