What: Art on the Edge
Where: Blanton Museum of Art
The lowdown: Austin's edgiest black-tie affair kicked off Saturday, February 20, at the Blanton Museum of Art with swinging tunes and fashion-forward socialites. Guests were treated to sips courtesy of Tito’s Vodka, Van Duzer Vineyards, and Real Ale Brewing Co. as well as bites from Word of Mouth Catering during the fundraiser.
Attendees certainly brought style, and the decorative accents throughout the Blanton's galleries and Rappaport Atrium, provided by Mandarin Design Lab, added to the celebration. The formal attire didn't stop Austinites from moving and grooving to music from Memphis Train Revue and DJ Mel.
Guests also got a sneak peek at the Blanton's newest exhibit, "Come As You Are: Art of the 1990s," before it opened to the public Sunday, February 21. "Come As You Are" runs through Sunday, May 15.
