Capitol View Arts : About Our Name

If you open the side door of Austin’s Historic Victory Grill, you’ll see a perfect, beautiful view of the Texas Capitol. We have often wondered how many performers and patrons of the Victory Grill throughout the years have gazed at this spectacular site and had thoughts of equality, freedom, and change.

We thought the representation of this Capitol view was befitting to an organization whose mission is not only to improve the lives of artists and residents on the east side, but also to offer the Austin community a chance to preserve past history and experience new and exciting transformations as our city continues to grow.
