Your Massive Guide to the Best Austin Street Art: Graffiti, Murals, and More: 2020 Edition


Public art is one of the best perks about living in Austin. Whether the art is commissioned or not, you can find amazing Austin murals and street art all over the city. Alleyways, sides of buildings, bridges, even dumpsters — art is everywhere. Street art has totally changed the way we travel as well. In addition to seeking out historic landmarks and museums, visitors are now looking for the coolest places to snap a photo. Thankfully, we live in a city that has embraced street art and continues to expand it.

To make the discovery easier for you, we created a massive list of some of our favorite street art including graffiti, murals, mosaics, structures, and everything in between. With new art popping up every day, we’re sure you’ll discover new art on your own, too!

And if you really want to see Austin and get the most out of your day, check out AO Tours Austin, the original and most comprehensive overview tour of the city’s great culture, history, and how we “keep it weird.” The tours cover 30 miles and 50+ points of interest, in just 90 minutes. Led by the most knowledgeable and entertaining guides, they’ll show you Austin’s must-see iconic points of interest while giving you insight into the city’s rich cultural scene.
