Good Dad Studios–a new studio complex in Austin, TX–opens its doors to the public for both weekends of the East Austin Studio Tour. Join us on Saturday November 11th (4pm-10pm) for the official Grand Opening Party! This emerging arts studio complex houses over 80 artists' studios and plans to expand with three art galleries, several food truck options, and an exterior industrial studio space. For their Grand Opening on November 11th (4pm-10pm), Good Dad Studios will be hosting a group show of community artists, 80+ open studios, complimentary drinks, music, and over 40 different artists pop ups throughout the 42,000 sq ft building space. On the final Sunday of the tour, November 19th at 7:00 pm, Good Dad Studios will host a panel discussion with art community figures exploring the old and new Austin art scenes, and ways in which the community can move forward together.
The inherent cultural and economic value of artists’ spaces is no secret, and the creation of Good Dad Studios reasserts that successful art communities are an integral part of successful urban landscapes. Located in an old, 1970s office building, Good Dad Studios embraces the vintage aesthetic of the existing interior space while simultaneously breathing new life into the building. Conceptually, this is a tribute to the history of the spaces that came before us, honoring the Keep Austin Weird mantra so often repeated.
Good Dad Studios offers some of the most affordable studio rental prices in the Greater Austin Area. The value of affordable studio space to an artist’s career is priceless and the benefits to their professional development are endless.The artist studios' rental prices have been set below market rates and the range of studio sizes available has been designed to accommodate emerging and established artists alike. There is also a section of Micro Studios available for art students, recent graduates, and artists first starting in their careers.
When artists are able to exist amongst each other, the cross-pollination of ideas, mediums, and creative efforts forms a creative ecosystem of exponential artistic growth. Good Dad Studios aims to provide a home for artists to exist and grow together into a supportive and inclusive community, capable of positively impacting the world around them.
We encourage you to come experience a space like no other and support the largest studio complex in central Texas.
