The Blanton Museum of Art at The University of Texas at Austin marks its 50th anniversary in 2013 and will celebrate this milestone occasion with a black-tie gala and special preview of
Through the Eyes of Texas: Masterworks from Alumni Collections.
The elegant event will launch an exciting year of programming to celebrate the golden anniversary, including a community-wide party in April.
Former University of Texas at Austin president Larry R. Faulkner and former
Blanton director Jessie Otto Hite will serve as honorary chairs of the gala which will honor the Blanton’s history and the visionary donors and collectors whose gifts helped build the museum’s collection of over 17,000 works of art.
