Abraham Cruzvillegas:
Hi, how are you, Gonzo?

Exhibition Activation: Art + Literature: Insect Architects with the Austin Public Library (all ages)

Activations are included with museum admission.
Admission is free of charge every Tuesday; complimentary advance tickets for Tuesday activations are encouraged.

Abraham Cruzvillegas embraces the concept of autoconstrucción—loosely defined as “self-constructing”—in a vibrant artistic practice imbued with a sense of constant becoming, a curiosity to learn and share information.

Kids and their grown-ups are invited to gather in the galleries for a special storytime at the museum! Hear Roberto the Insect Architect’s buzzy tale, presented by one of APL’s amazing librarians, then stick around to make a fly work of art inspired by the book. Kick off your summer reading with The Contemporary!

Recommended for ages 3–10.
