South Congress Avenue is well known for its "First Thursday" events, and now the stretch of Congress Ave in the heart of Downtown will have its own monthly event.
An informal collective ofart and cultural anchors --led by Austin Details Art + Photo and with promotional support by the Alliance--has formed to create a new monthly series of themed, open house experiences called I Art Congress. The free series is open to all and launches with "Love 101."
I Art Congress is meant to showcase the avenue in a fun, participatory, easy, and consolidated way so that people can experience the broad variety of arts, entertainment, dining and nightlife that's happening on Congress Avenue day and night, 7 days a week.
The founding arts organizations behind I Art Congress are Austin Details Art + Photo, Arthouse at the Jones Center, AMOA, Austin Creative Alliance, Authenticity, and Mexic-Arte.
