Austin readers agree, when it comes to art, ain't no party like an Eastside party 'cause an Eastside party don't stooooop! Wait, what? The East Austin Studio Tour is the best and most impervious defense against those who wail that Austin is a no-art town. Sure, we don't have that cruddy crude-money that bankrolled art in some other Texas towns, but what we do have are hordes of people who are interested in living and working in a city that gives creative energy as good as it gets it. Austin is an incubator for the visual arts – and all the reasons to believe in Austin are encapsulated by the weeklong studio art and gallery tour 'round Austin's Eastside. To do all 175 stops, you'd have to be Wonder Woman. And that's the point: You. Can't. See. It. All.
