This was the perfect space for my SoundCity Properties company launch event! The hosts were very easy to work with and accommodating. I will certainly lease this space again for future events.
We celebrated my wife's milestone birthday at Art for the People - Hallie and the rest of the team were amazing. The photos don't do the place justice. It's a beautiful building in central Austin with magnificent art and jewelry. A perfect, unique, Austin experience for guests - especially from out of town. Hallie even stayed on premise with us and helped tell our guests about some of the art. Many of us left with some :)
I can't say enough wonderful things about Art for the People Gallery. The staff was fabulous, the space awesome (interesting, bright, clean, and so fun), and just a wonderful place to have an event. What a jewel!
We just celebrated our daughter's Bat Mitzvah at Art For The People's beautiful gallery and it was a spectacular experience! Hallie and Lynnie were a joy to work with and so helpful with our event from recommending valet, chair suppliers and even helping to plate our desserts! The space was beautiful and our guests all complimented us on what a great space it was, how welcoming and "Austin-like" it was. I can't thank these ladies enough for letting us share our special day there!
We used the space for a graduation luncheon, and it was perfect. The staff were attentive and helpful and we got so many compliments on how unique and lovely the gallery was.
