The Blanton Museum of Art hosts its biennial black-tie gala and after party on Saturday, February 7.

The black-tie event will commemorate Powers’ distinguished legacy of leadership and commitment to the visual arts. The event will be followed by the gala after-party, Art on the Edge.
Over the past eight years, President Powers’ support and advocacy of the humanities has been transformative for the Blanton, ensuring that the visual arts play an integral role in the learning experiences of students on the UT Austin campus and beyond.
“We are thrilled to honor President Bill Powers at the 2015 Blanton Museum of Art Gala,” remarks Blanton Director Simone Wicha. “He has been a passionate champion of the arts and humanities on campus and understands the intrinsic value art brings to our lives. With his support, the Blanton is making art central to the educational experience of UT students and is further distinguishing itself as one of the best university art museums in the country.”
The 2015 Gala raises critical funds to support the museum’s outstanding exhibitions and educational programs that serve 150,000 visitors each year, in addition to celebrating the transformative power of art in our lives and communities, it will be an elegant evening of cocktails and dinner.
