The Art Galleries (TAG) at Austin Community College
The Art Galleries (TAG) at Austin Community College is an academic gallery program located on ACC Highland Campus. TAG is dedicated to the belief that community engagement with the visual arts produces important dialogues, creates new ideas, and gives voice to diverse viewpoints. The Art Galleries comprises three art spaces: Gallery 2000, Gallery 4000, and TAG Art Lab. In each of these areas, we feature works by emerging and established Central Texas artists and ACC faculty, student, and alumni artists. Through our exhibitions and regular programming, we provide educational experiences that cultivate cultural awareness, critical thinking, and artistic expression as a service to ACC and our local community.
