The Harry Ransom Center extends a thank you to the many generous sponsors who are helping us turn Friday’s opening party, “Kings & Creators,” into an event of biblical proportions.
Tickets are still avilable for this opening celebration. Join online or purchase a membership and tickets at the door.
Enjoy wine provided by the Austin Wine Merchant and Vineyard Brands Inc., a signature “Merrymaker” cocktail courtesy of Dripping Springs Texas Vodka, and screenings of biblically inspired clips, from Pulp Fiction to Jesus Christ Superstar to Bob Marley’s “Exodus,” curated by local filmmaker Tommy Swenson of The Alamo Drafthouse.
Guests will also have the opportunity to create a custom bookmark or notecard with the calligraphers of Capitol City Scribes.
All royal guests will receive gift bags compliments of the Ransom Center, Austin Sugarworks, Dr. Kracker Texas Whole Grain Specialists, Kirkus Reviews, Texas Rain, and TOMMY’S! Foods.*
One lucky guest will also win a “King for a Day” prize. At the event, enter to win a stay at the Four Seasons, Austin; a five-course chef’s tasting dinner for two at Wink; gift certificate for movies and refreshments at Violet Crown ($50); four tickets to a Chanticleer choral performance from Texas Performing Arts; four tickets to Sherwood Forest Faire, and a downtown horse-drawn carriage ride compliments of Angeli Carriages
