Public Art


Art on the Avenue logo

Music Lane is excited to introduce our newest initiative: Art on the Avenue.

This public art program shines a spotlight on talented, local artists in the vibrant Austin community. For the inaugural partnership, we collaborated with 17 accomplished art students from the Texas School for the Deaf and artist Emily Eisenhart to conceptualize a mural entitled “The Pulse of Austin.” The artistic process began with an in-person, collaborative collage workshop, where the artist explored each student’s unique relationship to the city of Austin. While each student created an individual piece, the thematic through-lines were clear – a love of community, a respect for and awe towards nature, a draw to the dynamism and vibrancy of city life, a lively sense of curiosity and creativity, an intrinsic pull to music and instruments, a connection to history and culture, and a deep fondness for what makes (and keeps) Austin weird.

We invite you to experience this captivating piece of art on display through Q4 2023.

Location: The mural is located on the staircase that leads from the plaza on South Congress (to the right of SunLife Organics) and descends down to Music Lane Street, across from Hotel Magdalena.

Emily Eisenhart is a multidisciplinary artist and designer based in Austin, Texas. The daughter of an artist and anthropologist, she is constantly exploring, and her work is heavily inspired by the textures, natural colors, and stories around her. She approaches many of her projects as an ethnographer, diving deep into the culture of a place to create dynamic artwork that is reflective of people and place. Her creative practice is a mixture of brand strategy and artistic sensibility. Prior to opening her own studio, she cultivated her design skills at the world class design firm IDEO, and as an independent artist has partnered with wide-ranging brands the likes of Gensler, Whole Foods, Warby Parker, YETI, SXSW, Madewell, and Austin FC, in addition to a diverse array of small and large clients around the country and in her home base of Austin. You can find her work at or on many muralled walls around Austin.
