With recent gifts to the Blanton Museum of Art and Landmarks, the Austin-based Still Water Foundation is making a major investment in the way people experience art on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.
The foundation will give $5 million to the Blanton’s master plan project to reimagine and transform the museum grounds. Landmarks, the university’s public art program in the College of Fine Arts, will receive $5 million to serve as the foundation of an operating endowment for the organization.
Still Water’s generous investment will propel forward these significant initiatives, elevating the arts across the Forty Acres and benefitting generations of students and visitors who encounter renowned works of art on campus. Each grant includes a $2 million challenge match that has been designated to inspire additional support.
The Blanton’s master plan project will reshape the footprint and face of the Blanton to create an iconic destination that facilitates the museum’s vision for innovative outdoor programming. It will form a vital connection between the university, the city of Austin and the Texas State Capitol Complex.
