He created the Nasher's gorgeous housing. (Yes, the one currently getting melanoma from Museum Tower's death ray.) He designed the Kimbell's sexy new wing. He's even been called a "starchitect" -- a side effect from winning the acclaimed Pritzker Prize. And for the Nasher's 10-year anniversary, super stud structure designer Renzo Piano will speak at NasherSalon on Wednesday, November 20, at 2 p.m.
Don't get the vapors just yet, because there's more. Pulitzer Prize-nominated artist, Waco native and former Philip Glass collaborator, Robert Wilson, will also speak at a NasherSalon. His goes down on Monday, December 2, at 8 p.m.
If you want to nerd out and photobomb them, you'll need a ticket. They're $40 ($30 for members), $10 for university students for Piano's talk. Wilson's cost $65 ($50 for members) and both are available here.
