Feb 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 9:00 pm


Join us for another free day of art, music, and inspiration! We’ll be open late until 9pm, so plenty of time to explore our collection and enjoy some art-related activities! 
You can refuel 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: Persuasion: Messages & Meaning in Art
See all of the ways artists convey messages on this tour of our permanent collection.
5:30-6:15pm ~ Beat the Rush: Charlie Magnone
Skip the ATX traffic and experience this unique program for emerging artists. This week’s program is led by Fast Forward Austin‘s Co-Director Charlie Magnone, presenting “Mad Rush” by Philip Glass (performed by Charlie Magnone), Philip Glass String Quartet 5 selections (performed by Invoke), and “Piano Phase” by Steve Reich (performed by Joshua Straub and Charlie Magnone).
7:30-8:00pm ~ Slow Looking
Enjoy a thoughtful and relaxed 30-minute conversation about a single work of art on view at the museum.
And don’t miss our current exhibition “Line Form Color,” a selection of bold works on paper from our collection.
Museum admission is always free on Thursdays. On the third Thursday of each month, the museum remains open until 9 pm.
The Blanton is located at the intersection of Congress Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
