in the studio :: cathedral of junk12:00 AM
Welcome to In The Studio, a place to show off your studio and meet some great artists! It's been a busy week of travels, so today I'm going to feature someone else's creativity that we thoroughly enjoyed during our time in Austin. I love Austin's amazing creativity abounding in every corner. Last week I talked about the graffiti park where I did a spontaneous photo shoot. Today it's all about creating out of junk.
That's right. Junk.
The Cathedral of Junk was one guy's idea and creative outlet that has turned into an Austin attraction. Almost shut down by the city, supporters rallied around to keep the backyard masterpiece at 4422 Lareina Dr. around for many to enjoy. Twenty years of constructing junk has created a structure of treasures that is candy to your eyes. I loved finding toys in there that relived childhood memories.
Cathedral of Junk can be seen by appointment only by calling (512) 299-7413.
Now it's your turn! Remember your "studio" can be anywhere. Let's celebrate each other's creativity by linking up and visiting as many as the other studios as you can. Check out the about post for more info and don't forget to grab the In The Studio button!
