Museum of Human Achievement
Springdale & Lyons
Tucked away in a secret corner of southeast Austin that was once home to all things “Blue” (Blue Genie Art Industries, a blue Goodwill, the Blue Theatre) is the Museum of Human Achievement, a 7,500-square-foot pier-and-beam warehouse with hardwood floors (it used to be a sex toy factory, they’d like you to know!). Now a multidisciplinary arts venue, the MoHA hosts studio space, gallery shows and immense immersive installations, film screenings, live theatre productions, and musical gigs ranging from hip-hop to the heavily experimental No Idea Festival to One Ounce Opera.
In which the artists will employ specific materials such as translucent plastic, cast paint, and raw clay to soften the rigid structure of a caged-trailer in the MoHA parking lot, complicating the boundary between interior and exterior space.
