The Austin Critics Table has named the 14th group of individuals to be inducted into the Austin Arts Hall of Fame.

As with the previous honorees, these three 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 2015 class of inductees includes:

Fidencio Duran – painter, muralist, educator

Heloise Gold – choreographer, dancer, company founder

Allen Robertson – composer, music director, actor, director, educator

The new Hall of Famers will be recognized at the 2014-15 Austin Critics Table Awards ceremony, to be held on Monday, June 1, 7pm, at Cap City Comedy Club, 8120 Research. The ceremony is free, and the public is welcome.

The Critics Table – an informal affiliation of writers who cover culture for the Austin American-Statesman and Austin Chronicle – will release the nominations for the most outstanding achievements in dance, classical music, visual arts, and theatre in the past year on Thursday, May 21. The full list will be available here.
