    PrintExpo + Steamroller

    Here's the most enjoyable upheaval of graphic goodness from this year's PrintAustin initiative, featuring bins with hundreds of priced-just-right prints, live demonstrations of different techniques, and – yes! – steamroller printing. And it's at the Museum of Human Achievement in Canopy, right? Which compound contains Big Medium, Art.Science.Gallery., Modern Rocks, Bale Creek Allen Gallery, and more. And Dimension Gallery right down the street! And Zhi Tea just across the way! This Saturday afternoon is, in other words, a perfect time for a visit.

    Volcom Garden: Where Do We Go From Here?

    Here's a mindblowing array of pop-culture marvels and graphic mayhem from Morning Breath and Mike Giant, international purveyors of visual power and eye-positive harbingers of doom. Gonna be a sweet mass of originals, prints, T-shirts, books, and – skateboard decks? That last one, maybe. The first few, definitely. And a fucking awesome opening reception with the artists this Saturday night.

    Wander

    Austin's innovative Art In Public Places project has conjured up an excellent choose-your-own-adventure sort of experience that incorporates actual sculpture on display around our urban hub. Roam the streets, roam the art, deep in the heart of Texas.

    Your Playable City: Shadowing

    Here's a fun new Downtown installation, created by Jonathan Chomko and Matthew Rosier, in which streetlights play back the shadows of those who pass beneath them. No, for real. As a citizen walks under the lights, "the shadow of a previous visitor will walk, hop, or dance beside them, and then their own movements will be captured and displayed to the next passerby." And here's a map of locations.

    Camiba Art: The Allegory of Good and Bad Government

    Zoë Shulman uses elaborate geometric symbols to express the virtues and vices of government, like something a more skilled and less gonzo John Dee might've come up with between bouts of angelic possession. The artist's new series of twenty hexagon-shaped artworks are presented as diptychs in a candle-lit gallery, and, listen, you really should see this, friend: It's phenomenal work and perfectly displayed.
