Located at the University of Texas, the Blanton Museum is housed in a 124,000-square-foot space with a 145,000-square-foot public plaza and garden. It is also home to Ellsworth Kelly's Austin, a 2,715-square-foot stone building with luminous colored glass windows, a totemic wood sculpture, and fourteen black and white marble panels -- envisioned by Kelly as a site for joy and contemplation.
The museum's collection includes more than 4000 works of modern and contemporary American art from the mid-19th century to the present; a collection of more than 1,800 Latin American modern and contemporary works; 230 paintings and four hundred drawings from the Rennaissance and Baroque eras; paintings of the American west; and a strong collection of contemporary prints.
The museum also hosts several temporary exhibitions each year.
