Celebrating Mexican- and Latin-American heritage, this popular cultural arts center—nicknamed MACC—has rotating exhibits in its two galleries on Lady Bird Lake. It’s fronted by a 22,000-square foot outdoor plaza with a sculpture garden and a pleasant zocalo (central plaza) on an inviting expanse of lawn; performances are often held here. Interest in MACC has grown since its 2007 opening; plans are in the works to expand the original space—an open circular structure by Mexican architect Teodoro Gonzalez de Leon—to include a theater, among other things.
