Austin, Texas has always been a town of creatives, whether for musicians or visual and performing artists. It’s what draws people to this city year after year. With happenings such as South x Southwest, ACL Music Festival, and the E.A.S.T. Austin Studio Tour, locals and visitors always have something to experience, but the remarkable art scene rivals any large metropolitan area.
WCC is a heavy hitter in the local Austin art scene. So much more than a gallery, their 7,800 sq foot showroom often feels like a colorful museum with exhibitions of several modern and post-war movement artists such as Banksy, Blek le Rat, Warhol, and up-and-coming Ivory Coast artist, Aboudia.
You can take a two story tour of the emerging and collected talent they represent and have propelled onto a national stage, such as contemporary artists Sarah Ferguson, Will Klemm, and my favorite, Ellen Heck.
Opening their doors in 2021 and located in the coveted South Congress or “SoCo” area of Austin, their industrial-style building encloses the work of artists such as Banksy, Ron English, and Austin-based muralist and visual artist ZuZu.
