James A. Michener may be known for creating art in the form of literature, but he also had a keen appreciation for other art forms, too.
The author of Tales of the South Pacific and his wife began collecting paintings in the 1960s and eventually gathered 376 pieces.
Almost 300 of those are now in the Blanton Museum of Art at the University of Texas, Austin, and an exhibit that includes many of them opened today.
Expanding Abstraction runs through January 10, 2021, but those of you far from Austin can at least enjoy ten selected works in a post on Literary Hub.
