Blank canvas: Suzanne Deal Booth's career has spanned the globe and art world alike. An art histo- rian, conservationist, and philanthropist, the native Texan serves on a number of museum boards and is co-founder of the Friends of Heritage Preservation. Mentor musings: She tributes her longtime mentor, art collector and philanthropist Dominique de Menil of Houston's Menil Collection, for her love of classic and eclectic culture. "There were objects from all different centuries that she would pull together, like a puzzle, and tell a story in a room," says Booth. Magnum opus: Since settling here nine years ago, Booth has been investing in Austin's visual art scene. Her latest endowment, in association with The SUZ A NNE DE AL BOOTH The Philanthropist Contemporary Austin, is the Suzanne Deal Booth Art Prize: a biennial award of $100,000 and a solo exhibit to an artist of any age. "The arts are a critical part of what determines who we are and how we address our history," she says. "There's room in Austin to encour- age the next step: an enlightened cultural environment." website: sdbooth.com
