Summer was fast and furious, back-to-school came and went and Labor Day Weekend is here! Austin is ALWAYS ready to celebrate any occasion, here are a few ways to spend your weekend with the fam:
The Sacred Springs Kite Exhibition-September 2- 8am-Austin Central Library 710 W. César Chávez St, 78701: Art4Water’s inaugural program, The Sacred Springs Kite Exhibition, is a collaboration between The Watershed Association, Terry Zee Lee and 30+ national artists in the creation of water-inspired art kites. Hanging like an oasis in the sky, The Sacred Springs Kite Exhibition brings together diverse communities around the respect for Texas’ great springs–their history, their value, and the threats to their existence. Through this exhibition, the Watershed Association partners with Terry Zee Lee, a renowned facilitator and curator of kite exhibitions, to raise awareness of the vital connection of water to life. With Jacob’s Well as one example, “Sacred Springs” seeks to float a collection of groundwater icons in the sky.
