Blanton Museum Of Art

Uploaded by waepoint on 30 Apr ‘06, 12.00am CDT.

Austin has a fancy new art museum. The opening was saturday night and it was billed as a “super grand opening” and indeed it was. What made the opening “super grand”, you ask? Well, it was a 24 hour opening. Thats right! There were events from 9:00 p.m Saturday night until 9:00 p.m Sunday night! Amazing? Amazing!

I showed up around 10 on Saturday and there was a line around the building to get in. I decided to try my luck on sunday morning instead. Here is some footage: quicktime

On sunday morning the museum served coffee and donuts. So tasty! There was no line to get in and so I got in and checked out the space. Nice space! The collection is pretty interesting too. Alot of the pieces will be familiar to anyone who has spent any time at the Harry Ransom center…
