Austin's newest art experience is "Hopscotch: Light and Sound," an immersive maze of interactive exhibits dreamed up by local artists. For the show's opening party, guests roamed through sculptures that act like real-life Snapchat filters, a sky made out of balloons, and rooms filled with sound-reactive lights. A day at the show is the perfect way spruce up your social feed and make your DMs light up with messages saying, "Where are you?!"

Catch the show at  6100 Airport Blvd. now through March 31.
