The Contemporary Austin’s Betty and Edward Marcus Sculpture Park at Laguna Gloria is named in honor of a founding grant by the Edward and Betty Marcus Foundation. This contemporary art destination presents exhibitions and permanent outdoor art installations on a site of great natural beauty on Lake Austin.
A complement to the Jones Center, The Contemporary Austin’s downtown location, the Betty and Edward Marcus Sculpture Park at Laguna Gloria is committed to a vibrant, engaging program of exhibitions alongside thoughtful land stewardship. The Edward and Betty Marcus Foundation’s gift allows for the commissioning, exhibition, and acquisition of new works of art by leading international contemporary artists as well as the preservation of the works and Laguna Gloria grounds. The gift celebrates Betty Marcus’s great passion and vision for the arts, especially in outdoor settings.
With diverse ecology—including woodlands, meadows, gardens, and waterfront and a rich array of flora and fauna—Austin’s historic Laguna Gloria is a precious reserve of natural beauty, and a welcoming art-in-nature site, in the heart of the city.
