Hearts of the East Side - Walking Tour
For this project, eleven different local artists created a heart sculpture that represents the traditions and charm of the East Austin culture. Commissioned by the East César Chávez Merchants Association and Souly ATX, these designs range in medium, inspiration, and style. Spanning for a mile stretch, the hearts sit at various East Austin business locations.
We have created this walking tour, with this interactive map for reference, for you to take in the Hearts of the East Side project. At each heart, you will see a sign with a QR code. Scan the code for your full virtual walking tour experience.
With this walking tour, we hope you stop and appreciate each heart while learning of its meaning, take a picture or two, and enjoy some East Side food and beverages along the way.
Kicking the tour off right, make your way to 1010 E Cesar Chavez St. Grab a refreshing beverage. From coffee, a glass of wine, to an ice cold beer, there's plenty of options to choose from here.
