Virtual Tour - Granny's Empire of Art
Austin, TX, USA
Strange. Kooky. Magical. Peculiar. Funky. Eccentric. Weird.
Whatever you call it, we are proud of it. We are now offering in-depth and interactive virtual tours with some of our favorite wonderfully weird homes! You can tour this home from your own home and from anywhere in the world!
March 9th - 7PM (central)
When Jaina Bee (they, them) purchased their home in 1997, they had the vision of creating a collaborative-art utopia. Creative friends and friends of friends came and went as they pleased, each contributing to and transforming the space as they went, creating a home that had a life of its own.
Perhaps the most striking piece is Jason Mecier’s PencilVania art installation enveloping Jaina’s three-story stairwell. Made out of over 185 THOUSAND colored pencils, this piece mesmerizes you with its intricate patterns and details. Another wonderful installation is Jaina’s bathroom, named The Yellow Submarine Crash Lands on Gaudi’s Beach House in Brazil (The Movie). It’s an under the sea adventure complete with psychedelic and glow-in-the-dark curved mosaic walls, portholes and a periscope that plays 60’s surfer videos.
And you can’t miss their fur mediation closet, Faux Real Diner, circus carpet and the Haunted Parlor. Come meet Jaina and several of the artists behind Granny’s Empire of Art!
