We are thrilled to announce a gift of approximately 120 modern and contemporary Latin American artworks from The University of Texas at Austin alumni Judy and Charles Tate. In addition, the Tates have made a major contribution towards the endowment that supports the museum’s Latin American curatorship. Artists in the collection include Tarsila do Amaral, Lygia Clark, Frida Kahlo, Carlos Mérida, Wifredo Lam, Armando Reverón, Diego Rivera, Alejandro Xul Solar, and Joaquín Torres-García, among others.

The Blanton will present a selection of approximately 70 works from the collection in an exhibition entitled La línea continua, opening September 20.  To learn more, visit
