Jones Center on Congress Avenue
When you visit The Contemporary Austin – Jones Center, you are greeted by a glittering work of art floating above the roofline and visible from the street below. This now-iconic sculpture, Jim Hodges’s With Liberty and Justice for All (A Work in Progress), sets the stage for what you will experience inside: a dynamic schedule of exhibitions in nearly 8,000 square-feet of museum space.
Designed by architect Paul Lewis of Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis, The Contemporary Austin – Jones Center includes two floors of exhibition space and a stunning rooftop deck—the Moody Rooftop—home to exhibition-related films, performances, family programs, and tours, along with some of the most creative private events in the city.
