Fine Art’s Newest Medium: Vinyl Toys
The Story of West Chelsea Contemporary
Founded in Austin in 2002, West Chelsea Contemporary (formerly Russell Collection) offers works by names such as Banksy, Alex Katz, Damien Hirst, KAWS, Hunt Slonem, Takashi Murakami, and Andy Warhol. Representing emerging and mid-career artists working in a range of mediums, the gallery’s program focuses on 20th century and contemporary art, with a particular specialty in American, Asian and European post-war movements.
Today the gallery maintains an exhibition space totaling more than 7,800 square feet with three satellite locations.
