Louis Grachos, the Ernest and Sarah Butler Executive Director & CEO of The Contemporary Austin, announces the grand opening of the new Moody Pavilions at the museum’s Laguna Gloria location. Home to permanent and changing installations of contemporary sculptures in the Betty and Edward Marcus Sculpture Park, an active Art School serving students of all ages and levels, and the historic Driscoll Villa, the fourteen-acre art-in-nature destination will now include a number of well-designed amenities situated in modern steel and glass structures and outdoor terraces along a shaded, landscaped pathway at the property’s entrance. The museum has also added two new sculptural installations at the site’s entrance by Jessica Stockholder and Liam Gillick.
The public is invited to celebrate the opening of the new Moody Pavilions at a free event on May 11, 2019. Details about the event may be found at thecontemporaryaustin.org/
