Top 5 must see E.A.S.T. home

Our favorite thing about living in Austin is LITERALLY this festival. It’s the most unique chance to intimately be able to see the people who make Austin the collective Art centric town that it is. The coolest part is you get the rare opportunity to view where these people create. You get to see their homes, bungalows, apartments, and studios where their one of a kind masterpieces are created. You can see a wide variety of art, ranging from uses of every medium. Canvas, sculptors, metalwork, clay, furniture, home decor, and so much more.

Pure loves to support local organizations, companies, different businesses and of course artist. Big Medium, (organization for EAST), especially is one of the more notable organizations Austin has to offer. They are a nonprofit organization dedicated to championing and cultivating artists and the contemporary arts in Austin and across Texas. Through their programs and partnerships, they are working to foster the arts and facilitate an inclusive cultural dialogue between artists and their communities.

Start your East tour with free breakfast Saturday, November 10, from 9:30 to 11 am at Springdale General 1023 Springdale Rd. All the food and drink will be sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka, High Brew Coffee, Topo Chico, Wunder-Pilz Kombucha, Rockstar Bagels, Bobo’s Oat Bars, Thai Fresh, Vegan Nom, Mmmpanadas, Urban Roots, Sprouts Farmers Market, and more!
