• UO Happenings: Space 24 Twenty Grand Opening Party

    Last week we celebrated the Grand Opening of the newest member of our UO Spaces family: Space 24 Twenty in Austin, TX. With the opening of two restaurants, a pop-up marketplace with work by local artists in the courtyard, and an amazing lineup of shows....there was a whole lot to celebrate. Read on to see more from the all-day party — and if you missed it, be sure to stop by the Space at 2420 Guadalupe St.

    We're here! 

    Kicking off the day with a Marketplace featuring local Austin designers, makers, and creatives — like Emz Jams, Canoe, and Esby (and not to mention some favorite Austin food trucks like East Side Kings parked in the courtyard) 

    Nelson Projects led a workshop in the afternoon (while we obsessed over all her amazing handmade objects, clothes, and textiles)

    We also hung out with the team from Attendance Records, a local nonprofit dedicated to bringing creativity back into schools by connecting teachers and students with local writers, artists, and musicians (you can learn more about their amazing work here). To support the awesome work they are doing, we're donating 100% of proceeds from our new UO Journal to the cause — pick up your copy here!

    Spending the completely beautiful, sunny day outside — made even better with a burger from Symon's.
