  4. 4. GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER MUSEUM & CULTURAL CENTER 1165 Angelina Street, Austin, TX, 78702 LEEDv2.0 New Construction AWARDED LEED CERTIFICATION MAY 2006 CARTER • DESIGN ASSOCIATES The George Washington Carver Museum, located in and owned by the City of Austin, Texas, is a cultural facility operated by the City's Parks and Recreation Department. It has the distinction of being the first African-American neighborhood museum in Texas. The museum is currently housed in a historic 1,720 sf building that was originally Austin's first main public library. By the 1970s, the library had outgrown the building, and a larger adjacent facility was completed in 1980. The historic library was converted into the George Washington Carver Museum and has continued to serve the Austin community. Since that time, it has collected and preserved artifacts that document the history of African Americans on city, county, state, and national levels and promoted a climate in which African American artists are recognized and appreciated for their culturally diverse heritage. In 1998 Austin voters passed a bond package to expand the Carver Museum and Carver Branch Library. The new Museum & Cultural Center has a multitude of functions including a 134 seat theatre with dressing rooms and associated support areas, a dance studio/theatre rehearsal room, 4 exhibit galleries and a children's gallery with exhibit preparation and archive storage space, a classroom with adjacent storage and darkroom functions, conference/meeting room, as well as a lobby, catering kitchen, store, and administrative office space associated with the public spaces.
  5. 5. Emissions and cost are reduced by decreasing energy use through improved design. Emissions are further eliminated by contracting 100% of the building’s energy to a renewable source.
