In this hallway you’ll find two photographs. 

The first is a moment before a performance by our ACG Youth Orchestra at Spokesman Coffee Bar, captured by Arlen Nydam. ACGYO is made up of young guitarists from across Austin who dedicate their time and talent to making magical things happen. They’ve performed in major venues, went on concert tours, collaborated with others, premiered new works of music, and made amazing recordings. Here is a very special 360-degree video they made on the rooftop of The Contemporary Art Museum in downtown Austin with their director, and ACG’s Artistic Director, Joe Williams. 

The second is portrait by photographer Bill Sallans of former ACG student Devin Gutierrez which appeared on the cover of Austin Monthly Magazine as part of a special feature on ACG Education by Renuka Rayasam. At the time Devin was a student at Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. ACG has been working at TSBVI since 2010, and in recent years has developed a braille lifelong learning resource called which is used worldwide. Here’s a video feature by Woody Harrison about the guitar program at TSBVI.
