We’ve been fortunate to experience and host the work of several Austin artists, notably Hallie Rae Ward and Truth have dedicated space in the TOWERS Realty office.
We’re always on the lookout for new additions, and were thrilled to discover a temporary gallery space that’s just opened in the 2nd Street district. It’s being called ArtProm, is located at 208 Colorado, and is the brainchild of Travis Huse of Big Ass Canvas.
You’ve likely seen Travis’ work around Austin. For one thing, he’s done the garage murals for the AMLI on 2nd Street district (if you are driving southbound on Guadalupe, you’ll see it on your right as you pass 3rd Street). Residents of The Shore Condos may also recognize his work in our parking garage elevator bay at P1.
In our opinion, Austin is in dire need of more gallery experiences, particularly of the street art variety, and ArtProm delivers in similar fashion to SpraTX.
They’ll be around for the next couple of months, and we highly recommend stopping in and checking it out. Art will rotate as it sells.
Additionally, Travis would also be excited to help coordinate using the space for private parties and the like. He wants to get people in the gallery and viewing the art. If you have a guest list and need a cool space for your event – just reach out to him through his Big Ass Canvas site.
ArtProm is the best gallery addition to downtown Austin, since the Peoples Gallery started at City Hall.

What are your hours? I stopped by on Saturday at 11:30 am and found the doors locked.

Brilliant! On my way….

Travis is a terrific artist and art show organizer. He’s been curating these sorts of pop-up gallery activations in occasional empty spaces between tenants in the 2nd Street District for the past several years. This one is particularly well done with some beautiful works showing and very fairly priced. Well worth checking out!
