We just returned from Art City Austin art festival downtown. It was super cool and I'd definitely recommend going. Tons of artists from around the country showcasing their art for sale on Cesar Chavez Street and 1st Street Bridge. Pretty views of Town Lake. Beautiful day for walking around with the kids in the stroller.
PLUS - they have an interactive kid's block, where local organizations host a variety of art projects and activities for the chilluns to enjoy. Scarlett painted a rock!! And played with life size foam puzzle pieces, which was pretty neat.
While I would have loved to buy a painting that was well out of my price range, I scored two reasonably priced but very unique and beautiful pieces of jewelry from Austin artist, Edson Enriquez, of Limbo Jewelry. If you can't make it to the art fest this weekend, you can find his awesome designs in his showroom at 305 East 5th Street or buy online.

Hope you can make it out and enjoy all the beauty and art there!
Have a great weekend!
