Weaving art into life.

Join us in connecting art and community.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

In times of joy, sadness, strength, and crisis, art is an uplifting and healing force that can bring us all together. The aim of this initiative is to support artists of all kinds and weave art into life.

COVID-19 has pushed dancers out of the studio and into their homes where they don't have the proper spaces and equipment to dance to their fullest. We want to help out so we are partnering with local Austin visual artists to create one-of-a-kind artwork on the underside of wooden dance floors that celebrate dance, art, and life.

All pieces will be posted on our website for anyone to purchase as a tax-deductible donation to the artist and to Tapestry.

ARE YOU A VISUAL ARTIST?

Let's work together to create something beautiful.

WHAT:
