Mofoz artist, Marc Zuazua will be painting at Art City 2012 in Austin this weekend making murals. The central Texas art festival is coordinated by Art Alliance Austin and is a family friendly happening that showcases art and artists through blocks of downtown Austin.
Here is more info on Art City taken from their website.
Invigorating the streets, plazas and open spaces with art of all kinds, Austin’s Cesar Chavez Street and the 2ND Street District play hosts to a one-of-a-kind, weekend-long cultural celebration. Part art festival, part block party, Art City Austin features nationally recognized artists, local food and musicians, kids’ activities and art installations that bring the community together to enjoy great art for the entire family in one of the most beautiful areas of downtown. Rarely car-free, Cesar Chavez Street becomes a vibrant community hub where Austin’s oldest art festival and biggest block party presents a celebration of culture that invites you to meet your neighbors, bring your friends, explore your city and be inspired.
Art City Austin will transform Cesar Chavez, the S. First Street bridge and the 2ND Street District surrounding Austin City Hall into a two-day festival and community-wide celebration. Activating streets by opening them to people and creating an environment of culture and fun is central to the mission of Art Alliance Austin. Art City Austin encourages attendees to explore the city and walk, bike, or park and ride to the festival by partnering with Capital Metro to provide free admission to Metro Pass holders, free admission to those who ride their bikes and park at the Mellow Johnny’s Bike Valet and offering free parking and shuttle from MLK and Congress Ave.
Fun, whimsy and excitement are paramount to this decades old festival. A cultural phenomenon with a contemporary twist, Art City Austin is Austin at its finest.
