At Hopscotch, Local Art Partners with Science to Create an Exhibit Unlike Any Other

Love local art? If so, you are in luck! This Friday, head to Hopscotch headquarters to experience Light and Sound, the latest installation project to hit the Austin area. With so much to see, it’s a must for your weekend to-do list!

Hopscotch: Light and Sound will feature 13 distinctive installations and showcase works from a variety of local Austin artists, as well as a selection of national and international artists. Each room in the 10,000 square foot space contains a different exhibit with colorful design elements from LED lights to live videos and music.

Interactive experiences range from controlling the clouds and weather via balloons to painting with light through an infrared brush by hand. Every art activation within the project requires participation from guests, and Hopscotch: Light and Sound invites guests to explore the surreal surroundings in a playful manner.

Hopscotch strives to create immersive experiences that are a respite from the outside world and invoke a sense of joy and wonder in guests. Hopscotch allows artists to showcase their works in sustainable and creative ways, encourages them be inspired by new mediums and empowers them to reach new audiences.
The event will run through March 31 before opening a new, permanent exhibit location in San Antonio in late summer 2019. The new brick and mortar location in San Antonio will feature local San Antonio-based artists as well as select national and international artists.

Get involved in the local art scene when you attend Hopscotch: Light and Sound! Tickets range from $15 to $23. The event is for ages 18 and up after 7 PM. Proceeds will be donated to a local art-focused nonprofit.

Even though Oxford at Tech Ridge Apartments in Austin, Texas provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
