Once the Naval and Marine Reserve
Center, this city-operated cultural facility
now educates budding artists instead of
sailors and hosts many cultural events.
Located on the periphery of the pending
arts complex development over and
around Palmer Auditorium, the DAC
features the Dougherty Arts Theater, a
150-seat auditorium that is available for
music, theatre, and dance productions, a
large sculpture/pottery studio, and dozens
of classrooms. City staff at the DAC also
books the Sheffield Hillside Theatre in
Zilker Park, across from the main
entrance of the Barton Springs pool.
