I have walked by this statue many times. I appreciate seeing it, especially since I saw SRV headline the Aquafest several times in that part of Zilker Park (Auditorium Shores). Its a perfect place to remember him.

Everyone gets their photo taken with "Stevie" he is our hero in Austin. Located in a popular spot so pretty much everyone walks by him.

Located on the south side of the Colorado River on the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail in Auditorium Shores at Town Lake (between the 1st Street Bridge and the Lamar Street Bridge) the larger than life bronze sculpture of blues guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughan, an adopted son of Austin who was killed in a helicopter crash...

Great location and very well done piece of art. Larger than life of course as he was himself. The background is a bit cluttered now with all the construction going on in Austin but well worth a visit.

Austin is truly the "live music capital" of the world. Statues like the excellent rendition of Stevie Ray Vaughan & of Willie Nelson, etc. keep visitors informed of our roots. I hope the city never takes down these important landmarks.

True work of art that will make you so sad to have lost a talented musician at the height of his career in a sad accident. The location is beautiful, easy parking, and a nice walk to see it. The statue is very interesting in that the shadow is included and is different. When I was there, some people were... More

It's in a nice River walk park just outside of downtown Austin. To have a statue erected for an artist is a real big deal. I've come from Vancouver Canada to see SRV and pay my respects. I saw him play twice here in Vancouver, so he came and visited me the least I could do was repay the favor.... More

About 1/4 mile off 1st Avenue Bridge, it's a nice tribute to a local "hero". I really like the bronze "shadow" behind the statue, I didn't even notice it was not a real shadow until my partner mentioned it.
