Austin Arts Hall of Fame: Class of 2007

The Austin Critics Table has named the sixth group of individuals to be inducted into the Austin Arts Hall of Fame

The Austin Critics Table has named the sixth group of individuals to be inducted into the Austin Arts Hall of Fame. As with the previous honorees, these seven Austinites have made significant contributions to the community over many years: some as artists, some as educators, some as patrons, some as administrators, some as a combination of these, but all as friends of and advocates for the arts. The 2006 class of inductees includes:

James Armstrong and Larry Connelly (Austin Lyric Opera, Ballet Austin, Zachary Scott Theatre Center, et al.) – patrons

Sally Jacques (Blue Lapis Light) – choreographer, arts advocate

Emily Little (Clayton Levy & Little Architects) – architect

Harold McMillan (DiverseArts, Austin Downtown Arts) – company founder, arts advocate

Ishmael Soto (University of Texas, Austin Community College) – artist, educator

Dan Welcher (University of Texas, KMFA 89.5FM) – composer, educator, organization founder

Suzan Zeder (University of Texas) – playwright, educator

The new Hall of Famers will be recognized at the 2006-07 Austin Critics Table Awards ceremony, to be held on Monday, June 4, 7pm, at Cap City Comedy Club, 8120 Research.
