Austin Arts Hall of Fame: Class of 2008

The seventh group of inductees includes individuals from the fields of architecture, comedy, music, and patronage

The Austin Critics Table has named the seventh 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 2008 class of inductees includes:

Margie Coyle (Cap City Comedy Club) – manager, comedy advocate

Stan Haas (TeamHaas/Nelsen Partners) – architect

Don Howell (The Public Domain Theatre/Austin Shakespeare Festival) – patron, producer, actor

Craig Hella Johnson (Conspirare) – conductor, vocalist, composer, company founder

Joe and Teresa Lozano Long (Long Center for the Performing Arts, Austin Symphony, Ballet Austin, Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum, Austin Lyric Opera, et al.) – patrons

Tina Marsh (Creative Opportunity Orchestra) – vocalist, composer, company founder

The new Hall of Famers will be recognized at the 2007-08 Austin Critics Table Awards ceremony, to be held on Monday, June 2, 7pm, at Cap City Comedy Club, 8120 Research.
