The Blanton Museum of Art at the University of Texas at Austin is full of European paintings, American contemporary art, prints,and drawings. It's a fun (and air-conditioned) cultural activity when you're looking for a break from outdoor activities.
The Hope Outdoor Gallery (or the Austin Graffiti Park) is full of professional and amateur works of graffiti art. You'll see memorials, impressive spray-paintings, and secret messages meant for just one person. It's fun to explore, and you can bring a can of spray paint to make your own mark while you're there.
