"Austin" is the final work by American artist Ellsworth Kelly. This chapel-like space is a permanent exhibition building on the grounds of the Blanton Museum of Art on the University of Texas campus. Inspired by his study of Romanesque churches in France, "Austin" integrates all the major aspects of Kelly's artistic styles, including the use of color grids, color spectrums, totemic sculpture, and black and white imagery. This is a unique expression of artistic vision in a contemporary vernacular. Best times to visit are in late morning as the sun moves through the space. Admission included within entry fee to the Blanton.
