Based on the foundation that art acts as a vehicle for open discussion, TAG Tuesdays bring together ACC students, faculty, staff, and members of the Austin community to explore topics surrounding art-making, art history, museum studies, and more.

This program occurs every other Tuesday, 4:00pm – 5:00pm. Topics of TAG Tuesday programming differ, and each session will take place in either Gallery 4000 or 2000.
