CLICK HERE to access our virtual Austin Museum Day activities!

This year, we are proud to present a virtual Museum Day experience, Busy Bodies: Exploring Figurative Art and Movement at The Contemporary Austin. From oil paintings to bronze sculptures, to vinyl murals and performance art, the figure has inspired artists throughout the centuries.

Learn about three contemporary artists whose work uses the human form as a jumping off point, then get creative and make some body-centered artwork of your own! Check out art projects, virtual tours, and conversations with educators, all inspired by works of art on view at the museum.

Sign up for a FREE art kit filled with materials to accompany our Museum Day activities! Pick up is Tuesday, September 15 through Sunday, September 20, 9A-12P at Laguna Gloria.
