Set in the intimacy of our Contemporary Project gallery, this exhibition presents a selection of contemporary sculpture, drawings, and photographs recently gifted to the Blanton Museum of Art by The Contemporary Austin. Culled from a gift of more than 700 works, this selection celebrates this momentous transfer, includes several works by Austin- and Texas-based artists, and underscores the Blanton’s commitment to building a world-class collection of contemporary art in Austin.

Organized by Carter Foster, Beverly Adams, and Veronica Roberts
