ELLSWORTH KELLY’S ‘AUSTIN’

- Kate Russell/Ellsworth Kelly Foundation Details: blantonmus­eum.org Christophe­r Wynn

Before his death two years ago at age 92, renowned abstract artist Ellsworth Kelly gifted the design concept for the only freestandi­ng building he ever designed to the Blanton Museum of Art at the University of Texas at Austin. The structure, named Austin, with its stone facade and chapel-like colored glass windows is now complete and opens to the public today. Look for a review by Dallas Morning News architectu­re critic Mark Lamster online next week and in print in an upcoming Arts & Life Sunday. The building sits on the outskirts of the campus, and you’ll find a correspond­ing exhibition next door in the museum: “Form Into Spirit: Ellsworth Kelly’s Austin.”
