We love our community. There’s always something fun and interesting happening in Austin. This weekend and next, join Gluu for EAST, the free, self-guided art tour around East Austin.
Hundreds of local artists will be showcasing their work around the east side, and we’re especially excited to launch the “Gluu Garden” for some of our favorite local artists to hang their work and showcase their skills.
The art tour officially goes from 11am-6pm on the weekends of November 10/11 & 17/18. Additionally, the Gluu team will be hosting beers and music afterwards, from 6pm-7pm, on both Saturdays (November 10th & 17th) in the Gluu Garden on 2nd & Waller (H60 on the EAST Map).
If you can make it, expect to see artists, studios, exhibition spaces, pop-up shows, and tons of fun art-centered events all over the east side of Austin. More details are listed below, and can also be found on the EAST Website.
So if you live in Austin, or happen to be in town for either weekend, stop by to check out the beautiful art, and dont forget to enjoy a beer with us in the Gluu Garden!
