ALL WEEKEND (Kick off Party on Friday, June 19)

The Austin Book Drawing Party Hosted by Citygram


What does Austin mean to you in 5″x7″?

Citygram is throwing a drawing party! The Brooklyn-based, crowd-sourced art museum, The Sketchbook Project, is parking their mobile library at one of our favorite food truck parks, the South Austin Social, this weekend. To kick off the event, we’re hosting a happy hour, where we invite our friends and fellow artists to come browse through the library truck, then create a 5×7″ original sketch to add to the Austin Book that will continue on the rest of the tour as part of the viewable collection.

We’ll have free beer from St. Arnold’s Brewery, live music and food trucks including: Unity Vegan Kitchen, BOCA and Beirut. The South Austin Social is also celebrating their first anniversary that night, so the party will continue after 8. The mobile library will remain on display in the park for the rest of the weekend, where visitors may peruse the books and view the masterpieces from Friday night.

We’ll provide the paper, the book and some simple supplies for you to show us what Austin means to you. Have your own special medium you’d like to use? Bring it! From watercolors to feathers, it’s all fair game. Read more about it in our event announcement: The Austin Book Drawing Party
