Arts Story  December 21, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...At last, Doug Dempster can take that pesky "interim" out of his job title.

Arts Story  January 26, 1996
"...The movement for Tune in/Spin out is structured in two parts, much of which was worked out on a computer choreography program called Life Forms. The first part of Tune in/Spin out is a series of short dances, "then, abruptly, it will become something else." What exactly that something else is, Cunningham will decide when he gets to Austin..."

The Education of a Lifetime
A look at UT's Performing Arts Center and the process by which they bring the biggest names in jazz to Austin.
Music Story  October 29, 1999, by Christopher Hess
"...Except, down the dark, empty back halls -- somewhere -- there was a light on, or one about to go on; Wynton Marsalis, trumpet player, bandleader of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, and arguably one of the most influential young jazz musicians of his generation, was doing a little after-hours teaching. Sharing a piano bench in the bulding's green room with a student, Marsalis was passing along the educational moment of a lifetime. "I know people have mixed feelings about Wynton Marsalis," asserts Cynthia Patterson Quinn, program manager for the University of Texas' Performing Arts Center, "but there's no one who's as dedicated to young people as him..."

Arts Story  May 22, 2009, by Robert Faires
"...Or maybe the chance to get back in the classroom was part of the draw. (Come fall, he'll also be a professor of art and art history in the University of Texas College of Fine Arts.) Possibly he liked the idea of serving as special adviser to President William Powers Jr..."

Arts Story  May 11, 2012, by Jonelle Seitz

States of Distinction
  October 16, 1998, by Jay Hardwig
"...Food, football, and fiddle music: Beyond these three cultural cornerstones, there is little to motivate the artistes in the two great states.

Arts & Entertainment
Best of Austin Story  September 24, 1999
"...Over the past few seasons, the athletic young dancer with the large, soulful eyes has proven himself a chameleon of the ballet. He has dazzled us in serious parts well-suited to his age and skills -- in Ulysses, his Telemachus was a coiled spring of frustration -- but he's been equally striking in comic roles, crafting a coy, impetuous, otherworldly Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream, a sly, languid partner to Karen Kuykendall in a segment of Kisses, and a classic nerd awkwardly attempting balletic grace in the spoof The Nutzy Nutcracker..."

UT Joins Pioneering New Plays Initiative
The UT Department of Theatre & Dance will gain even more access to new drama through a new program from the Playwrights' Center
Arts Story  July 2, 2004, by Robert Faires
"...Plus, the center acts as a sort of "institutional literary manager," suggesting writers and their scripts that initiative members might consider for playwriting residencies or productions from the more than 500 scripts that its staff reads a year. That's covering more new drama than almost any theatrical institutions could do alone, even one with the resources of UT's theatre and dance department or the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts – which may explain why those organizations are among the national participants..."

UT's Master Plan Disaster?
So Far, School's New Buildings Receive Low Marks
News Story  August 29, 1997, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...you get the point. (The okay newer buildings, like the Fine Arts Complex and the Rec Sports Center, are few and lonely.) Moffett Hall is well within the unfortunate latter tradition, infected by all the hip and hot trends -- in this case Postmodern Pop à la Michael Graves -- and doomed to look dated tomorrow and ridiculous the day after...."
