Annual Fund

The Annual Fund supports the Blanton's reinstallation—an important museum project that will enhance your experience with the Blanton’s permanent collection, elevate its role in Austin, and amplify its national presence. Everything you have always enjoyed about the museum will become even better. More art, added variety, and innovative ways to explore your creativity will result in a truly exceptional Blanton at every visit.

The Meinig Family Foundation has pledged to match gifts made before December 31, 2016 in support of the reinstallation dollar for dollar up to $25,000. It is the museum’s goal to match that amount through community support. Your gift to the Blanton will be doubled by this special matching opportunity!
