Your Heart is Not a Museum at Domy Books

If you live in Austin and haven’t jumped on the Domy Books bandwagon, it’s high time you did. Domy Books debuted a second branch in Austin in the beginning of June and people have been talking ever since. Don’t let the name fool you, it is not a “book store”. They do have stacks, racks and tables of books, videos and hard-to-find paraphernalia relating to contemporary art but the place dedicates an equal amount of space to exhibiting artwork in two gallery rooms. A week or so after Domy’s grand opening, I was in another respected local gallery and the staff urgently encouraged me to swing by and see the hip book and art extravaganza.
