Austin, Texas is a city that appreciates a good mural.
As an organization that appreciates an art-loving community, our Color Squad teen program combines the two — mural and community — to design and execute a brand-new piece of public art each year. This year’s mural, titled “Welcome to Austin,” focuses on the themes of community and home, and will be unveiled at Lott Pocket Park on Memorial Day, May 28.
To celebrate the upcoming unveiling, we are recognizing just a few of the murals that have become colorful symbols of East Austin. Check them out by following along with this self-guided tour.
