Inspiration: Ellsworth Kelly's "Austin"

The Blanton Museum of Art here in Austin TX just announced this morning that they will acquire and construct Ellsworth Kelly’s Austin, a 73 x 60 foot stone building to be sited on the grounds The University of Texas at Austin, and we couldn't be more excited!  

The University of Texas has always had a special place in heart, as several of our staff members are alumni. To think that we will be only miles from such a fantastic installation -- we can't wait to see what kind of inspiration this brings to our future projects!
