Laguna Gloria at Night: Celebrate Miffy Fountain’s “Gotcha Day!”

Miffy Fountain has been on loan to The Contemporary since 2015 and has finally joined our Austin family permanently! We’re celebrating Miffy’s “Gotcha Day” in cool, contemporary fashion, with food, drinks, and artmaking for adults and kids.

Members of The Contemporary receive free admission and early access to tickets. Not a member? Become one!

You don’t want to miss the celebration. Scroll down for all the details:


  • Enjoy complimentary cocktails, Topo Chico, and more included with your ticket purchase.

  • Join the revolution with free, Miffy-approved treats from Bananarchy.

  • Preorder a tasty snack or a full picnic from onsite cafe Spread & Co. They've put together some special packages you can select to add on when you buy your tickets, so your picnic will be ready for you when you arrive. You may also order these items and more on-site anytime during the event.

  • Keep the party going with happy hour prices on Spread & Co.’s menu of beer and wine, along with coffee and other non-alcoholic drinks.


  • You will be accompanied throughout the evening by Texas String Assembly!


  • Laguna Gloria is magical at night, complete with illuminated sculptures, gently lit pathways, hooting owls, and moonlight reflected on the waves of Lake Austin.


  • Pick up a Miffy-inspired art kit then dig right in or take it home to fuel your Miffy memories later.

  • Get creative with special guest artist Iván Mayorquín, who is joining us from Mexico City. In workshops at 6:15 and 7:15P we’ll create time capsule message boxes to feed both our creativity and our personal well-being.

  • Play with Popform: An interactive sculpture game developed especially for The Contemporary by The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture

Tickets are limited, so purchase yours soon. We can't wait to see you at Laguna Gloria!
