We are thrilled to present Looking Up in partnership with The Contemporary on Thursday, November 19, 7PM CST. RSVP Online Here. Free, Donations Welcome.

For our Austin Now series, we asked multiple local artists and musicians to collaborate with each other and create an experience that reflects how life is now. In our November 19th performance, Looking Up, we’ll experience the collaboration of sound and sculpture with the Austin Guitar Quartet and the Contemporary Austin’s sculpture garden at Laguna Gloria. 

In a sense, the performance is a guided tour of the beautiful garden through pre-recorded videos interwoven with a live performance from AGQ in the garden’s villa. 

This collaboration of sculpture, sound, and the natural beauty within Laguna Gloria showcases the common path between the three; a different approach to time. 

The Laguna Gloria has reopened since the pandemic began and is providing a safe and inspiring space to allow people to slow down, catch their breath, and unwind. You can learn more about visiting the Laguna Gloria Here.

ACG’s Artistic Director Joe Williams spoke with Director of Public Programs and Community Engagement from The Contemporary Austin, Andrea Mellard about the upcoming performance, and the power of art and nature together.
