Date – March 4 - 18
Events – Mappy Hour. Tuesday, March 10th from 5:00 to 7:00PM at AIA Austin.

Metal — a testament to the Industrial Age’s impact on urbanism and architecture— is a man made alloy that composes the framework of our built environment. It is resilient and pervasive—taking shape in myriad forms. You find it in lamp posts, utility boxes, street furniture, architectural elements, signage, sculpture, and raw structure. We hope you enjoy your tour and conversations with the metallic inhabitants of Austin.

Fusebox

Fusebox Tour

Fusebox

Date – April 1 - 12

Say hello to objects and venues all around the 2015 Fusebox Festival. Fusebox is 12 days of unique programming with 50+ events in 20+ different sites around the city. We like to think of the festival as a hybrid art festival. It's part performance festival, part film festival, part music and visual art festival, part culinary and social event, part public art project, and everything in between. The colliding and encountering of different ideas, perspectives, forms, etc., is central to our understanding of creativity and plays an important role in how we shape the festival each year.
