The Contemporary Austin reflects the spectrum of contemporary art through exhibitions, commissions, education, and the collection.
Reflecting the unconventional spirit of Austin, The Jones Center offers informative and informal art experiences oriented towards the interests of a broad general audience. The welcoming and centrally located galleries serve as the Museum’s primary exhibition site and present continually changing exhibitions and education programs that showcase an array of twentieth-century and contemporary art.  As the Museum’s original home, Laguna Gloria is a monument to our long-standing commitment to the community—offering a unique experience of history, art, and nature. Home to The Art School, it also rovides a tranquil setting for private parties and community gatherings year-round.

This project is funded and supported in part by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and in part by the City of Austin Economic Growth & Redevelopment Services Office/Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future. Visit Austin at
