Join us on the Meredith Stage in Dell Hall as we celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Long Center and honor our 2023 award recipients with an incredible luncheon filled with special live performances.   

The Long Center Icon Award honors individuals, corporations, and organizations in our community for their outstanding commitment to the arts in Austin. Award recipients embody the Long Center’s values of live arts, community, and diversity and have been guiding forces in our vision that everyone deserves access to the arts and cultural experiences. 

Proceeds from the Icon Awards support the Long Center’s mission to serve and uplift Austin’s artistic community while being a catalyst for creative discovery in our community.  

 
 About the 2023 Honorees
Eva Womack

Eva Womack is a beloved member of Austin’s arts and culture community and has been a champion of the performing arts in Central Texas for over 25 years. Together with her late husband Marvin Womack, Eva has been a dedicated supporter of the Austin Opera, Austin Symphony Orchestra and the Long Center for the Performing Arts, serving as a Trustee to the Opera and Symphony. Eva and Marvin were instrumental in making the dream of the Long Center a reality and in recognition of their generous gift to the Capital Campaign, the Long Center’s Entry Courtyard is named in their honor. Outside of the Long Center and our Founding Resident Companies, Eva and Marvin have passionately supported the next generation of artists through their alma mater the University of Texas within the Butler School of Music and numerous other performing arts organizations throughout Austin.

AT&T has long been committed to arts & culture in Central Texas, believing that access to the arts improves education, builds community, and fuels the economy. Leslie Ward, President of AT&T Texas and founding Long Center Trustee, has been a part of the creation of the Long Center from the very beginning. Named in honor of their generous Capital Campaign gift, the AT&T Education Room sits at the heart of the Long Center and has served hundreds of community partners and organizations that utilize the Long Center’s performance halls. AT&T continues to serve the Long Center through the Board of Trustees, as a Member of the Business Arts Council, and as the underwriter of our digital concert series Good Vibes Only, dedicated to bringing diverse, local Austin artists, to new and broader audiences from the Long Center stage.
