Dear Metrosetter travelers in Austin, Texas:
In town on the third Thursday of the month? Head on over to Blanton Museum of Art for free events and programs and extended hours. Not in town on the third Thursday? That’s okay. You can check out their permanent collection for free every Thursday, nonetheless. The collection includes European Paintings, American and Contemporary, Latin American, Prints and Drawings, and more.
Third Thursdays (5 – 9PM)
A monthly event that features extended hours and multiple programs, including artist talks and screenings; *Yoga in the Galleries (6:30PM); the Blanton Book Club (7PM) , which makes connections between specific books and works of art in the collection or special exhibition; and tours. The Blanton Cafe and Museum Shop are open until 9PM on Third Thursdays. Enjoy an extended happy hour in the Cafe featuring a glass of wine and slice of gourmet pizza for $5.
