Event: Travis Heights Art Trail, 11/7 & 11/8


The Travis Heights Art Trail is this weekend, November 7 – 8 from 11am-5pm. This is a grassroots art show, created by and for the artists of Austin. Each year, this city gem showcases some of the city’s longest practicing artists as they open up their homes and studios to the public. The Trail has become an area tradition, with thousands of fans walking along the beautiful streets of the Travis Heights neighborhood.

The Travis Heights Elementary School Arts Program is one of the highlights of the show. Parents and children from the school display and sell “kid” art as a way to fundraise for the school art program. Plans are in place to add other school art programs as well.

New this year, the 13th year of the Art Trail, is:

  • a literary house at Fairview and Newning Avenue featuring local authors with book readings and signings.

  • a music house on Travis Heights Blvd. featuring Fulmore Junior High music students.
  • art cars with a mini car parade and cars at various houses.
