  • DESCRIPTION

    Founded in 2004 as a community art collective, The Austin Museum of Popular Culture (formerly known as the South Austin Museum of Popular Culture or South­Pop) became a 501 (c)3 non-profit arts organization in 2006 and is dedicated to be­ing a world class archive and repository of Austin music related art and ephemera. 

    Through the leadership of its board and staff, AusPop catalogs and conserves a collection of comprehensive works that reflect the vitality, complexity, and unfold­ing patterns of Austin music related art and design from the 1960s through today. Through exhibitions and educational programs, the Museum presents an archive that is recognized as a center of research, supporting scholarship and publications that further the cultural evolution of Austin. 

    AusPop's mission is to collect, conserve, exhibit, and interpret Austin art, design, music, and culture of the past 50 years and make that history accessible to local, national, and international audiences. AusPop traces the evolution and social con­text of Austin's cultural production, interpreting the impact of the artists, art forms, and recurrent themes that have profoundly shaped the city's self-conception, on both a local and national level. 

    The Austin Museum of Popular Culture is entering its 17th year of collecting, preserving and exhibiting Austin music related art and ephemera and will continue to work to educate the public about the unique culture of Austin. 


    This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
