Summary In January 2015, the renowned American artist Ellsworth Kelly gifted to the Blanton Museum of Art the design concept for his most monumental work, a 2,715-square-foot stone building with luminous colored glass windows, a totemic wood sculpture, and fourteen black-and white marble panels. Titled Austin, following the artist's tradition of naming particular works after the places for which they are destined, the structure is the only building the artist designed. Envisioned by Kelly as a site for joy and contemplation, Austin is a cornerstone of the Blanton's permanent collection and a new icon for the city in which it stands. This comprehensive book provides a thorough look at the project, from its inception to its current position as one of the artist's most important and enduring works. An incisive, thorough essay by Carter E. Foster includes archival material, drawings, historic photographs, and nearly all related works Kelly created as he developed the building's design. --Publisher's website.
