Cool Summer Nights: Art Night

July 13, 2018 — Austin, TX

Our second Cool Summer Nights highlights the amazing range of visual arts found in Texas in conjunction with the exhibition Comanche Motion: The Art of Eric Tippeconnic. Guests can watch artists create paintings inspired by the Museum’s galleries before their eyes, or try out a variety of visual arts techniques for themselves.

Cool Summer Nights lets you discover Museum content in a social and comfortable atmosphere. Whether coming in work clothes straight from the office, enjoying the atmosphere before heading to dinner, or capping off a day spent exploring the city, Cool Summer Nights will give you the freedom to engage and explore the Museum at your own pace and on your own terms.
