Public art is one of the best perks about living in Austin. Whether the art is commissioned or not, you can find amazing Austin murals and street art all over the city. Alleyways, sides of buildings, bridges, even dumpsters — art is everywhere. Street art has totally changed the way we travel as well. In addition to seeking out historic landmarks and museums, visitors are now looking for the coolest places to snap a photo. Thankfully, we live in a city that has embraced street art and continues to expand it.
To make the discovery easier for you, we created a massive list of some of our favorite street art including graffiti, murals, mosaics, structures, and everything in between. With new art popping up every day, we’re sure you’ll discover new art on your own, too!
The City of Austin has temporarily banned public gatherings. Please stay home. The Free Fun in Austin calendar is only for live digital events at this time.
