Free Things to Do in Austin

 Nan Palmero

An abandoned construction site on a hillside was transformed a few years ago into an ever-changing public art installation. The multilevel concrete walls are packed with colorful images, ranging from graffiti to huge murals. Local artists and art students are invited to contribute to the installation only as part of organized events, but anyone is welcome to peruse the art during daylight hours.
