Third Thursday at the Blanton (SXSW-friendly)

March 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 9:00 pm - Free

Join us for some mid-SXSW inspiration during a full free day of art & art-related activities!

We’ll be open late until 9pm too, so there’s plenty of time to drop by between party-hopping 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: Form into Spirit: Ellsworth Kelly’s “Austin”
Explore Austin’s four main motifs: Spectrum, Black and White, Color Grid, and Totem, at this companion exhibition.

5:30-6:15pm ~ Beat the Rush: prismATX Ensemble
Skip the ATX traffic and experience this unique program for emerging artists.

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”Form into Spirit: Ellsworth Kelly’s ‘Austin’” which provides conceptual origins on the monumental permanent building now open to the public.

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.

Paid parking is available in the Blanton/Brazos Garage on Brazos Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Parking is $4; bring your ticket with you to the front desk of the museum.
