Today, AMOA-Arthouse announced that it will participate in the Association of Art Museum Directors’ (AAMD) Art Museum Day, which coincides with International Museum Day, on Friday, May 18, 2012. As part of the celebration, AMOA-Arthouse will offer a special discounted price to play the artist-designed miniature golf exhibition, Art on the Green, at its Laguna Gloria location just two days before the exhibition closes on May 20, 2012. The museum’s downtown location, the Jones Center, will also participate and encourages the public to come by, take advantage of the free admission, and view Texas Prize, the triennial juried exhibition that awards one Texas-based artist $30,000.
The more time we spend in Austin, the more culture we take in – from Art created out of Junk at the Cathedral of Junk, to funky art murals randomly painted on the wall. One of the most fun “art” that my family has enjoy came a few weeks ago when we visited the AMOA-Arthouse Art on the Green at Laguna Gloria. We had a ball playing mini golf on 9 amazing art exhibit “holes”, you can check out our fun here.
On Friday, May 18, visitors to Laguna Gloria will be able to play the Art on the Green course for a discounted price of $4 adults/$2 children for non-members, and $2 adults/ $1 children for members. Also on view at Laguna Gloria during this time are Collection Selections: The Barrett Collection in the Driscoll Villa, and the perennial Seeing Special Things Student Art Exhibition in the Gatehouse Gallery. At the Jones Center, the aforementioned Texas Prize is on view, in addition to Amie Siegel’s exhibition Black Moon, plus Julia Oschatz’ film Odds and Ends: Venus, and Ezra Wube’s Amoraon the Congress Avenue screen.

What a fantastic way to take in more cultural in Austin, and show your kids how fun Art can really be!
