With free admission, member-only tours and events, and exclusive previews of new exhibitions, membership at the Blanton offers some of the finest cultural experiences in Austin! While we love all our visitors, June is Member Appreciation Month at the museum: a time when we extend a special thank you to all of our members for their generous support and friendship! To celebrate, we’re offering extra special member perks all month long.
Are you looking for an enjoyable evening out? Come to B scene: Blue Hawaii on Friday, June 20. Guests will dance to the hot tunes of Dalevis (Dale Watson’s Elvis-inspired alter ego), enjoy a cash bar with specialty cocktails, snack on yummy bites like Elvis’ favorite peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwich, and much more! And Blanton Members will have extra special perks at the event, including an exclusive outdoor member lounge, complete with special seating, light bites, a private cash bar, and an art activity just for them. Plus, B scene is now always free for members!
Do you have kids or grandkids that are looking for fun, creative activities in a cool setting? Join a Storytime Tour or stop by the WorkLAB, the museum’s open studio ensured to inspire all art enthusiasts. We’re also showing several family-friendly movies in the auditorium this summer.
Want to learn more about the art on view at the museum? While we offer weekly tours, members can beat the crowds and take part in a Member Tour of the new summer exhibition, In the Company of Cats and Dogs. Organized by the Blanton, this exhibition takes a multifaceted look at our relationship with felines and canines through the ages.
Have company visiting this summer? The Blanton is a perfect place to beat the heat! Members enjoy special Friends and Family Fridays, where they’re invited to bring unlimited additional guests for free general admission every Friday in June.
All of these activities are free for Blanton members. For a complete list of programs and events be sure to look at the Summer Calendar of Events for dates, times, and descriptions.
Not a member yet… but want to be one? You are in luck. We have a special, limited-time offer going on right now. Joining is easy!
Thank you, again, members, for all you do to support the Blanton.
