In these boom-happy times, people seem to be forgetting what brought most folks to Austin in the first place: our vibrant creative atmosphere. It seems that we've also forgotten that in order to create works of cultural significance, artists need affordable office and studio space. The Artplex houses a variety of low-budget, grassroots arts organizations, from the Cinemaker Co-op to the Salvage Vanguard Theater. We like to wander through the exhibition-lined hallways and check the bulletin boards to keep current on upcoming openings, screenings, and events.
