Welcome to the HOPE Outdoor Gallery, our community art park located at 11th & Baylor St. in downtown Austin, TX. This educational project is managed by the non-profit HOPE Events and was officially launched in March 2010 with the help of contemporary artist Shepard Fairey. It is the only art 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 outdoor art pieces driven by inspirational, positive & educational messaging.

Over the past 7 years the scope of the HOPE Outdoor Gallery has broadened based on the response from local families, community members and the Austin Creative Class. It has become an inspirational outlet and creative destination for all that come to visit and is recognized as one of the Top 10 Artistic destinations in Texas.

• Job creation for local artists

  • This place is closed and has fencing around it. Google says that it is still an open attraction however it is not. The artwork is still there and visible however you can only view from the street. Look somewhere else
  • Extremely fun, constantly changing art so it is never the same trip. You'll need to wear shoes that are good to walk around in and to hike a bit of you want to look at everything. Definitely worth seeing.
