The Arthouse at the Jones Center showcases contemporary Texas art and artists. As part of their community involvement, they administer the $30,000 annual Arthouse Texas Prize, the largest regional visual arts award for emerging artists in the United States.

The historic building at 700 Congress Avenue started life nearly a century ago as a theater, then a department store, before Arthouse (formerly the Texas Fine Arts Association) bought it in the late 1990s. A current renovation is planned for it, scheduled for 2009-2010, adding three new galleries, two artists’ studios, a 90-seat community/screening room and a 5,500 square-foot rooftop space with a 17 foot x 33 foot movie screen.

Open 6 days a week, with late hours every Thursday, and admission is free.
