The University of Texas at Austin is home to 23 works by Charles White, one of the 20th century’s most accomplished and innovative draftsmen and influential art educators. This exhibition celebrates the artist’s remarkable career and legacy, made possible by the generous gift of artworks from Drs. Susan G. and Edmund W. Gordon of Pomona, New York. The exhibition will include works from this gift and by other artists in White’s circle and will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue published by UT Press.

Organized by Carter E. Foster, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, Blanton Museum of Art; Veronica Roberts, Curator, Modern and Contemporary Art, Blanton Museum of Art; and Cherise Smith, Chair of African and African Diaspora Studies, The University of Texas at Austin

This exhibition will be on view at the Blanton Museum of Art and at the Christian-Green Gallery on campus. It will remain on display through November 30.
