Join us for an energetic performance of original music by Austin-based hip hop duo Riders Against the Storm (RAS). Riders Against the Storm is a musical movement in Austin, TX that can only be described as ‘historic.’ As recent recipients of ‘Band of the Year’ honors at the 2014, 2015, and 2016 Austin Music Awards, Chaka and Qi Dada (husband and wife) represent a significant first in the ‘Live Music Capital.’ Over the past 32 years, hip hop has never received the top honor at the annual awards show. Winning the title twice in a row is an accomplishment shared by only a handful of bands, including: Spoon, and Los Lonely Boys.​

Beat the Rush is a performance series that features live music inspired by visual art on view.

Museum admission is always free on Thursdays. On the third Thursday of each month, the museum remains open until 9 pm.

Paid parking is available in the Blanton/Brazos Garage on Brazos Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Parking is $4; bring your ticket with you to the front desk of the museum.
