The Austin sun is bright and hot as I make my way down East 11th. On my left is the Quickie Pickie, a bright and (thankfully cool) restaurant/convenient store, and on my right lay the austere steel skeleton of a new apartment-complex-in-progress.

Austin East Side Arts Magazine is an online publication dedicated to promoting and raising awareness about the arts, with a specific focus on local East Austin creativity and production. We are committed to covering all artistic disciplines and connecting with the heart of East Austin. Our vision is to be a leading guide for the arts in Austin, as well as a venue to publicize and expose local creatives.
The magazine is published by DiverseArts Culture Works, a non-profit arts organization concentrated on the long-term development of the Austin African American Cultural Heritage District.
Almost a hundred people crowded the small room that housed Austin’s Urban Renewal Board meeting on June 16th, spilling into the hallways and onto the floor as they struggled to find seats.

Due to our current artist in residence, Beth Consetta Rubel’s, fast approaching closing ceremony (I can’t believe August 1st has already come so fast!) I thought I’d do a post dedicated to Consetta’s work.
It’s hard to recall a time when I wasn’t thinking about race. I have always been aware that something was off between me and Ms. Blonde, blue eyes sitting next to me in kindergarten class. Just as time is connected to watches and light to the sun, so was I with race.
Consetta Rubel appears as a cheerful shock of purple hair and a wide smile as she enters Genuine Joe Coffee, a cozy café and the place she works part-time as a barista.
