Sightlines Turns Two!

For our second birthday celebration, Sightlines petit fours by Josephine Brent of Special Occassion Cakes Austin.

November 10 marked the second anniversary of Sightlines launch —and made for a perfect day to gather supporters and friends at a party.

The event was hosted by Sightlines board member Erin Keever at the historically-designated 1930s home of Susan Morehead, independent architectural scholar and longtime arts supporter.

Catering provided by Fine Home Dining and custom petit fours by Special Occasion Cakes, courtesy of Patricia Albright.

Sightlines advisory council members Ann Wilson, president and general manager of KMFA, and Heath Riddles, CEO of Pease Park Conservancy, spoke to partygoers about the importance of independent arts journalism and supporting Sightlines.

In our second year, Sightlines has published more 550 articles and updates by more than 30 arts journalists and now reaches more than 60,000 readers annually. Onward!
