Hope Outdoor Gallery in Austin, Texas

If you happen to visit the capital of Texas, you sure don't want to miss the Hope Outdoor Gallery. This place is definitely one of the quirky fun things to see in Austin, Texas.
"The HOPE Outdoor Gallery (HOG) is a three-story educational art project located at 11th & Baylor Streets in Austin – one of the largest outdoor galleries in the USA. This project was developed to provide muralists, graffiti artists and community groups the opportunity to display large scale art pieces driven by inspirational, positive and educational messaging."
"In addition, the project activates and beautifies a dynamic yet underutilized space with a great view of Austin! The project was officially launched by the HOPE Campaign in March 2011 with the support of Shepard Fairey and Obey Giant Art."
I thought the whole concept was brilliant! It's a perfect place where you can paint on walls legally.
