Ellsworth Kelly Austin at the Blanton Museum of Art

On February 18, 2018, Ellsworth Kelly: Austin opened to the public. The design concept for the 2,715-square-foot stone building with luminous colored glass windows, a totemic wood sculpture, and fourteen black-and-white stone panels in marble was gifted by the artist to the Blanton Museum of Art. Austin is located on the grounds of the University of Texas at Austin.

Austin is the only freestanding building Kelly ever designed. It features the first works the artist has ever made in stone and marks the first time Kelly has represented his color spectrum in glass and light.
