George Krause Photography Exhibit Nude Flash Mob
Oct 1 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

George Krause is a photographer who has done some amazing work. His series of Sfumato nudes was a new technique he created in surrounding the subject with light.


Twice in the past we have visited his shows and at a set time we go out, disrobe and come back in nude. Nudes during a nude art exhibit, who knew?

These were both very successful with no one being offended, and some pictures were taken and polite conversations had.

We have another opportunity to do another nude flash mob for one of his exhibits.

We will send out more info in an upcoming email.

Barton Creek Clean Up #4 and Lunch first! ***New Time!***
Dec 2 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

HCN is a proud sponsor of Keep Austin Beautiful.

Creek Emblem

We have helped keep a section of Barton Creek clean by holding trail clean up for nearly 20 years.

But first…we will meet at Spec’s Deli for lunch at Noon



After lunch we will head over to the clean up site.

Trail Entrance

Saturday December 2nd at 1:00PM we will meet at the Gaines trailhead along MoPac and walk in the 1/2 mile to our clean up start location, Twin Falls and start our section which takes us to Sculpture Falls.

This is a great time to chat with each other and the public as we usually get a lot of “thank you!” from passers by.

Bring sturdy shoes, water, and anything you may want to help pick up trash.

Trash bags will be provided as well as some trash grabbers.

This is a great opportunity to wear your HCN t shirts to show the pride we have for helping keep our city clean!
