The Blanton Museum of Art is the largest university art museum in the United States, and is a central hub for learning and dynamic cultural exchange in our city, state, and region. The museum's vast holdings – over 18,000 artworks ranging from the renaissance through today – make the Blanton a valuable resource for faculty and students.
The museum is committed to increasing art awareness and appreciation by providing engaging programs, events, and tours for educators, students, faculty, and the general public. Through innovative programming, we invite our visitors to experience the Blanton in multiple ways, creating lifelong connections to art.
The Blanton's K–12 programs range from student tours that explore art and ideas, to teacher workshops that instruct educators on how to integrate museum visits into core curricula. Art making activities and story time are also offered.
On the university level, both students and faculty are encouraged to take advantage of all the museum offers for those pursuing academic enrichment. Instructors may schedule exhibition tours for their classes, or work with Blanton educators to develop specific collaborations and learning opportunities. Students may become involved with the museum through the Blanton Student Guild or through a variety of other opportunities.
The Blanton offers FREE admission to all those with a valid University of Texas ID.
Education programs at the Blanton receive support from the Brown Foundation, Inc. Education Endowment.
