Bastrop Art Center Near Completion

The Lost Pines Art Center, located in Bastrop (about 30 miles southeast of Austin), is near completion of “a nerve center for arts in Central Texas,” reports the Austin American-Statesman. It opened nine months ago and has already had 10,000 visitors, but there are still big plans for the finishing touches.

The Statesman states: “Still on the drawing board are several planned projects in back, including a sound stage for outdoor concerts, a water feature replica of the Lower Colorado River, a sculpture garden, and conversion of four silos into maker spaces and an artist in residence, which will memorialize the 2011 Bastrop County Complex Fire.”

The artist-in-residency will be a national program providing living and working space in exchange for teaching other artists.

The two-story building includes large exhibition areas, shops, artists’ working, teaching rooms, and has a 12,000 square-foot glass and metal gallery.
