In 1848, Scotsman Robert Robson built a castle on the river and began providing homes to local and itinerant artists. Today, creative spirits can rejuvenate at the Live Oak Art Center housed in the historic 1891 Brunson Building.
Established in 1954, this gallery and studio shines as a beacon for new and aspiring artists, as well as art lovers, by providing workshops for all ages, hosting rotating exhibits, and maintaining an outstanding permanent collection. The facility is also available for weddings, galas and other special events.
The natural beauty of Colorado County has captured the eye and imagination of poets, artists and explorers for centuries; therefore it was no surprise to us when Texas Monthly identified Columbus as one of the "Best Small Towns for Art" in their September 2004 edition!
