SXSW is a mecca for all things artistic, whether or not people actually realize the foundations music, film, literature, and technology have in the arts and design. SXSW is more or less all about the current state of our culture, displayed in music showcases, film screenings, lectures, and meet-ups from March 8 to 17. If you are heading (or already on your way) to the Alamo state for the big celebration, promise us you'll make an effort to pop in to at least one of these 10 Art Events to Check Out at SXSW
