One of the many things I love about Austin, is whenever I visit I always find new art walls that have been painted throughout the city. The HOPE outdoor gallery, which stands for Helping Other People Everywhere is an educational project managed by the non-profit HOPE Events and was ofﬁcially launched in March 2011. It is the only paint park of its kind in the USA and was developed to provide muralists, street artists, arts education classes and community groups the opportunity to display large scale art pieces driven by inspirational, positive and educational messages.
