Art & Art History Collection Unveiling at the Fine Arts Library, 11/12, 5pm

The Fine Arts Library and the University of Texas Libraries invites you to the unveiling of the Art & Art History Collection at 5 pm on Thursday November 12.

The event takes place in the Fine Arts Library in the Doty Fine Arts Building and is free and open to the public.

The collection was formed in 2005 when the College of Fine Arts acquired about five thousand artifacts from the Texas Memorial Museum and 60 objects donated by the Boeckman family of Dallas.

The most significant holdings in the Art & Art History Collection are artifacts of various pre-Columbian cultures made from materials such as ceramic, stone, metal, textiles, wood and feathers.

A rotating selection of items from the collection will be displayed at the Fine Arts Library.

For more information or to RSVP to the opening, please call 512-495-4363.
