Featuring art exhibits from many different genres and time periods, this museum often hosts art shows and exhibits produced by local artists and/or inspired by Texas.  Collection highlights include four Georgia O'Keeffe watercolors and several works by John Marin.  The “Double Standard” serigraph by Ed Ruscha and “Ubu Aux Baleares” lithograph by Joan Miro are also of particular interest.  Sculpture is displayed outside.  In addition, the museum also hosts educational talks, lectures, and programs throughout the year, and the gift shop sells a wide selection of art-related gifts, books, apparel, and souvenirs.
