East 6th IBIZ District

This recently revitalized area of Austin has over 50 local businesses including bars like Shangri-la and Violet Crown, restaurants like Buenos Aries Cafe and Rio Rita and shops/services like Birds Barbershop and 6th Street Printing. It’s also a key part of our local art scene as it hosts the yearly East Austin Studio Tour (was Nov. 10-18 this year) where local artists open their studios to the public. Check out the video below for more info.

You can find his mural on the side of Buenos Aries Cafe at 6th and Waller. It was commissioned through a partnership among local businesses to keep the area beautiful and turn it into a “green light district.” More on that can be found at Keep Austin Beautiful.

ART

The other piece that I used for my banner is from the Art City Austin festival held every year in April by Art Alliance Austin in the 2nd Street district near Austin City Hall (from Lavaca all the way to Lamar). In 2013 it’ll take place on April 13th and 14th.
