French Legation Photo Exhibit

A Message from the French Legation:

We are excited to announce the French Legation State Historic Site’s inaugural art exhibition Then & Now.

Community members and artists alike are invited to share their photos, old and new, and other artistic impressions of the area, particularly East Austin and Robertson Hill.

Art and/or images will be selected for inclusion in an exhibition on view within the historic French Legation house.

The purpose of Then & Now is to showcase the changing landscape of Austin and Texas in a historical setting that has witnessed many changes.

As the oldest recorded residence in Austin, the French Legation has been part of Texas history since 1841.

The French Legation and Then & Now will bring Texas history alive, providing the public a tangible experience of history through place.

Artist selected for inclusion in the exhibition will be contacted for more information about their contribution.

Selections will be shown onsite and online in a dedicated web gallery.
