Road Trip: Austin Again

Robert Boyd

I like visiting Austin to look at art. Austin is nice. It's fun to be around hills every now and then. My sister and her family live there, and I like to visit them. And their cat. And as it happens, I was in Austin this weekend feeding their cat (and otherwise catering to its every whim). While I was there, I checked out the following art exhibits.

Tiny Park: I wrote a separate post about this stop on the tour (guided on Friday night by the Virgil of the Austin art scene, Jaime Salvador Castillo).

Rigoberto A. Gonzalez at the Mexican American Cultural Center: Great exhibit, fantastic venue (the MACC, which I was completely unaware of until Castillo took me there). This exhibit also got its own post.

Lane Hagood at Domy: This show consists of three paintings and a 'zine, which was sold out by the time I got there, alas. I was shown a not-for-sale copy of the zine and it looked fantastic. It was about the ghost of James Ensor haunting Hagood.
