Title-holder Matthew McConaughey medals in Texas arts
Pretty soon, Matthew McConaughey can drape a Texas Medal of Arts around his Academy Award statuette.
The accomplished Austinite — who co-hosts one of the city’s best charity parties, Mack, Jack & McConaughey, each spring — will inject his social spirit into the dignified medal ceremonies, Feb. 26-27, staged by Texas Cultural Trust, an arts advocacy group.
Also to be honored: photographer Mark Seliger for multi-media and artist Trenton Doyle Hancock for visual arts.
Already announced 2019 honorees: Author Stephen Harrigan, fashion designer Brandon Maxwell, architects Craig Dykers and Elaine Molinar, and the Vidal M. Treviño School of Communications and Fine Arts.
Yes, there will be a third wave of medal announcements in coming days.
