The Blanton Museum of Art presented La línea continua, a selection of approximately 70 works from the Judy and Charles Tate Collection of Latin American art. Recently gifted to the museum, the collection—the entirety of which will ultimately come to the Blanton—includes painting, drawing, prints, sculpture, and mixed media works by artists Tarsila do Amaral, Lygia Clark, Frida Kahlo, Carlos Mérida, Wifredo Lam, Armando Reverón, Diego Rivera, Alejandro Xul Solar, and Joaquín Torres-García, among others. Spanning the early 20th century to the present, it features many artists who were key to the creation of modernism in Latin America.
