As POP Austin hits Texas Friday 10/17 – Sunday 10/19, it’s all about the art. In fact, it’s a collector’s paradise. On Saturday and Sunday of the show, POP Austin will also feature “POP Talks” a series of lectures from specialists with expertise ranging from Chinese contemporary art to street art that is open to attendees. We love that art and education go hand in hand.

The Pop Talks will consist of influential business owners, specialists, and artists telling stories related to their interest and knowledge of the arts.
