Join us for a curator-led conversation about Charles White: Celebrating the Gordon Gift.
Another exhibition organized by the Christian-Green Gallery of Black Studies at UT is on view concurrently. The Blanton’s exhibition features White’s drawings and prints alongside work by those in his circle and reveals the impact of White’s artistic output on pop culture and representations of black life; the Christian-Green Gallery exhibition considers White’s legacy and influence on contemporary artists, especially those interested in the human figure, including Deborah Roberts and Vincent Valdez.
Included with museum admission. The Blanton is located at the intersection of Congress Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
Paid parking is available in the Brazos Garage on Brazos Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Parking is $4; bring your ticket with you to the museum.
