The Austin Arts Hall of Fame Class of 2018
Actor/director Norman Blumensaadt, dance artists Kathy Dunn Hamrick and Anuradha Naimpally, and philanthropists Jeanne and Michael Klein join the ranks of cultural heroes
Arts Story  May 24, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...As Chronicle Dance writer Jonelle Seitz observed, each work seems "more sophisticated, more human, more poignant, and more important than the last. Hamrick's dances show us how to be: how to approach, how to respond, how to accept challenges and joys." In addition to the work of her own company, founded in 1999, the choreographer shows us how to be in the Hamrick/Warren Dance school, which she co-founded and has run with artistic partner Kate Warren since 1991; the studio Cafe Dance, which she's run since 1996; and the Austin Dance Festival, which she founded in 2015.

Seeing Through Animation Darkly
On paper, artists Trenton Doyle Hancock, Arturo Herrera, Jeremy Blake, and Ellen Gallagher may share little in common, but in the Blanton Museum of Art's "Cartoon Noir" curator Annette Carlozzi has skillfully grouped works by them to reveal a shared interest in cartoon's darker underside as a means to explore moral complexities in contemporary life.
