Looking for some help here. I'm looking to find locations of popular street art around austin including murals like greetings from austin of south congress for example and general street art around town including Graffiti. I see images in my mind but cant remember where exactly and can't find a online resource to help with locations. I want to make a trip out of get some photography inspiration and see if i can incorporate it into a nice background for a photoshoot. Any scultpure places anyone knows about?

Also, any update where the chrome cow sculpture is at now?

There are two 'spray paintings' on the west-facing wall of the railroad bridge, east of the Lamar Bridge. One says 'Focus on One Point and Breathe' and the other says "Let's Pretend We Are Robots".
Apparently there is one that says 'Life = Change, Be Flexible" but I've never seen it. All of these have accompanying imagery.

I didn't realize that was the same cow, but if it is, here is the information about that particular sculpture ranch.

There is a really nice new one @ Sixth Street and I-35 Frontage Road intersection on the west side. Looking at Historic (Dirty) Sixth from I-35 it is on the wall on the left.

I love it. It is a nice welcome to Austin. What do y'all think? Here is a video of it being made:

Default i love you so much.

Cute story:

"i love you so much."




Iconic Austin: “I love You" and "I Love You More” Signs on South Congress

Quote:
A major part of the “Keep Austin Weird” mantra is being able to express love openly. In July 2010, local Austin musician Amy Cook expressed her love for her partner Liz Lambert, majority owner of Jo’s Hot Coffee Good Foods on South Congress. Cook knew Lambert was having a bad day and decided to spray paint on Jo’s North wall the words, “I love you so much”. The simple red spray paint in one of Austin’s most visited areas quickly became a hot spot for tourists and Austinites alike. There are smiling photos, kissing photos, and goofy photos taken in front of the words on the light green wall every day. The picture-perfect spot is also used for many wedding and engagement photos.
