Come and get inspired during a full free day at the Blanton!

Every Third Thursday we're open until 9pm too, so you can take your time between art gazing before refueling at our café with a slice of pizza & glass of wine for $5 (available after 5pm).

Our full line-up:

12:30pm-1:00pm ~ Public Tour: The Changing American Landscape

5:30-6:15pm ~ Beat the Rush: Austin Camerata
Skip the ATX traffic and experience this unique program for emerging artists. Chamber ensemble Austin Camerata will present new works written about art in the Blanton’s collection, composed by Michael Alec Rose.
