Please note: The HOPE Outdoor Gallery (HOG) has closed its Baylor Street location. It will reopen across from the Austin Airport in 2020.
Known for "keeping it weird," Austin is home to impressive street art all over the city, but the HOPE Outdoor Gallery—a once abandoned construction site turned community park—is a special point of interest. The largest outdoor graffiti wall in Texas, the HOPE Gallery attracts muralists and artists from around the world, and has become an important part of city culture.
Layers and layers of color, words, and design make for interesting views throughout the park, and serve as a vehicle for expression of modern Austin life. Locals agree the park has taken on a life of its own with the often impermanent wall art constantly changing and evolving. Visit the park on any street art tour of the city to take in the views and learn more about this important community space.
HOPE Outdoor Gallery is located at 11th & Baylor streets in downtown Austin, in the Clarksville area. The park is free to visit, and is open daily from 9am to 7pm. There’s a great view from the top of the park after a short climb, but beware of materials that may litter the park’s grounds and edges.
Address: 1101 Baylor St, Austin, Texas, USA
