Check out Dougherty’s new design

Monday, April 4, 2022 by Tai Moses

The Dougherty Arts Center is slated to move out of the naval center and into a brand-new facility built to its specifications at Butler Shores Park. The DAC project team received City Council approval for the building’s location last spring. Since then, team members have made “significant progress in designing a facility that will meet the needs of both PARD and the Austin arts community,” according to a parks department news release. At an upcoming public meeting, community members will have the opportunity to see the “current status of the facility design and information on the Art in Public Places opportunities that will be made available through this bond-funded project.” Monday, April 25, 7 p.m. Register for the Zoom meeting. The meeting will also be streamed on Facebook Live.
