The Contemporary Austin reflects the spectrum of contemporary art through exhibitions, commissions, education, and the collection. The museum has two distinct yet complementary locations, the Jones Center downtown and Laguna Gloria, a fourteen-acre site on Lake Austin, which is home to the Driscoll Villa, Gatehouse Gallery, the Art School, and the Betty and Edward Marcus Sculpture Park at Laguna Gloria. Exhibitions at The Contemporary Austin - Jones Center change approximately three times per year. Visit our website for information on current exhibitions.

There are two rooms with minimal art. $10 for a couple (mandatory, no longer donation-based). See picture, that's about the extent of the first floor.

If you like contemporary art and interesting architecture, you should stop in to Arthouse when in Austin. There are also special events and the rooftop space is particularly cool - it has a nice view of the city.
