Austin Convention Center hosts Art From the Streets and more in December 2018

December 1, 2018

The holiday season is here and the Austin Convention Center remains busy! From conferences to conventions, many different events are sure to keep the LEED® Gold-certified facility humming.

Austin Area Art From the Streets will return to the Austin Convention Center on December 1 and December 2 for its 26th Anniversary Show and Sale. Art From the Streets is a volunteer-run program that provides a safe and encouraging place where people who are homeless come to draw, paint, and create during free, twice-weekly open studio sessions. The program culminates each year in the Annual Show and Sale, where participants exhibit and sell their work to the public. For more information, go to www.artfromthestreets.org. Rounding out the December calendar is the Junior Volleyball Association of Austin’s 2018 Tour of Texas Qualifier on December 15 and December 16. For more details, go to www.austinsportscenter.com.

A look ahead to January reveals ten different events scheduled at the Austin Convention Center.

Nearly ten million people have attended 5,000+ events, including over 900 conventions, at the LEED® Gold-certified Austin Convention Center since it opened in 1992. Events at both the Convention Center and the Palmer Events Center, and their websites, can be accessed at www.austinconventioncenter.com.
