Laguna Gloria - Austin Museum of Art
Located immediately adjacent to Mayfield Park. The grounds of Laguna Gloria along Lake Austin were home to Native Americans and later were owned by Stephen F. Austin (one of Texas' founders and namesake of Austin). In 1943, Clara Driscoll donated Laguna Gloria to be used as an art museum. In 1961, the site was converted to the Laguna Gloria Art Museum and became an important part of the Austin arts scene. Soon after, the museum began offering art classes, and in 1983, a 5,300-square-foot facility was built specifically for the growing art school. In 1992, the institution changed its name to the Austin Museum of Art, and four years later, moved its primary exhibition space to 823 Congress Avenue, in the heart of downtown Austin. Laguna Gloria remained the site of The Art School, and in 2003, the Driscoll Villa was renovated and again became an exhibition space, focusing on local and regional artists. Laguna Gloria is also home to The Contemporary Austin Art School, one of the largest museum-affiliated schools in the nation, where classes are taught year-round to adults and children. The City of Austin and its leaders value the art, and they continually work to take advantage of this treasure in Tarrytown.
