The 2015 class of the Austin Arts Hall of Fame
Anyone inducted in the Austin Arts Hall of Fame can be counted on to have made significant contributions to our city's cultural life. But in some cases, inductees into this body also exemplify the character of the Austin artist: possessing an insatiable curiosity and an original point of view, generous in spirit and open to collaboration, someone whose creativity is fed by community in general and this community in particular. So it is with the three members of the Class of 2015. Those characteristics can be seen in all their respective work in the visual arts, dance, and theatre while they've been working in this city. Like the artists, educators, patrons, and arts advocates previously named to this Hall of Fame, these three are honored for their pioneering efforts in nurturing the arts here and helping them to flourish. The Austin Critics Table will induct them into the Hall of Fame during the Critics Table's awards ceremony – the most informal one in town – on Monday, June 1, 7pm, at Cap City Comedy Club, 8120 Research. Here is a brief introduction to these three local heroes.
