The Blanton Museum of Art will explore past and present cultural attitudes toward aging, while looking closely at outstanding works created in later life by Alice Neel, El Anatsui, and Ellsworth Kelly. They’ll also offer a sneak peek at a soon-to-be-realized mural by centenarian artist Carmen Herrera, commissioned specifically for the Blanton’s new grounds initiative.

Veronica Roberts, curator of modern and contemporary art, and Ray Williams, director of education and academic affairs, will be in conversation with Dr. Karen Fingerman, director of UT Austin’s Texas Aging and Longevity Center.
