Blanton Museum of Art

Save to my Account

A big university with a big endowment is bound to have a big art collection, and now, finally, the University of Texas has a suitable building to show theirs off properly. Founded in 1964, the Blanton moved into their sparkly new showcase in 2007, all the better for visitors to enjoy the permanent and rotating exhibits.

The collection spans a range of time periods, styles and media, including Roman sculptures, Old Masters, Western art and contemporary installations. Especially striking is the installment of Missao/Missoes [How to Build Cathedrals] – which involves 600,000 pennies, 800 communion wafers and 2,000 cattle bones.
