Located at the prestigious University of Texas at Austin, the museum is one of the most prominent university art museums in the United States. The art museum was founded in 1963 and consists of two building complexes filled with modern and contemporary art, Latin American art, prints and drawings from Europe, and much more. A favorite piece to see is Teresita Fernandez’s permanent wall installation, Stacked Waters – different stripes of blue on the first floor.
The visually appealing museum holds the largest public collection in Central Texas. In 2012, it was voted by the readers of the Austin Chronicle as the best museum in Austin. Tours of the collections are available to those who want one. Make sure to check the website for specific times. You can also check the website for new or upcoming exhibitions.
TIP: The museum also hosts many public programs, from yoga in the gallery to talks from artists.
