Art wall at Sparky Park

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Recently discovered an interesting place in Austin, a pocket park known as Sparky Park, located at an abandoned power substation on Grooms Street, near 38th Street. The park features an an “art wall” that turns a utilitarian concrete wall around some electrical transformers, into something that is very cool, very Austin. Local artists took karst stone, mirror balls, fossils, bits of glass and other found objects, and made a sort of “grotto.” Check it out sometime. It’s easy to miss, but it’s worth looking for. Makes me happy to know they haven’t run the bohemians completely out of town.
