East Austin Studio Tour: 25 Instagram favorites

Art, artists, people in the streets, and more from the 2016 event

There’s something about the East Austin Studio Tour that summons words like “encouragement” and “fun” and “happiness” and “home.”

The tour, which took place over the past two weekends, in its 15th year, is imbued with the essence of Austin: inventive, artful, beautiful, and talented—but also easygoing, goofy, and a little nose-thumbing.

In other words, it’s nothing fancy, but it’s exactly what it says it is: an extremely informal galavant around the workspaces of a huge range of Austin artists that doubles as the city’s biggest block party.

Below is a small selection out of the thousands of Instagrams taken during the 2016 tour. See ya next year!
