Art City Austin, presented by Art Alliance Austin, is back April 13-14 for its 69th year! Join us at Republic Square for a full weekend celebrating the arts, artists and creativity that make Austin our "Art City." On Sunday afternoon, associate Bud Franck will lead a walking architecture tour of downtown that departs from MRA’s own Republic Square Park Kiosk. The tour is open to general admission and VIP ticket-holders; for tickets and more info visit the official website.

Event description: What about Austin's built environment makes it such a great place to live, work, and play? Find out on this architect-led walking tour ranging from Republic Square Park to the Texas State Capitol. The 90-minute tour will provide insight into Austin’s unique sense of place by exploring the experiential qualities and cultural significance of our built environment. Sights will range from historic properties to contemporary architecture, including city parks and public art. Along the way, participants will learn how to "read the city" and gain a new appreciation for the impact of architecture and urban design.
