Art Club

Art Club events range from settings that are intimate and behind-the-scenes to specialized experiences in the galleries where members enjoy unique opportunities to learn about the Blanton and its collections in a social environment. Through special programs and trips, members also build relationships with curators, museum educators, and others who share a passion for art.

Another key function of Art Club is to help build and deepen the Blanton’s relationships in the Austin community. In addition to being a social and educational group, Art Club members serve as Blanton ambassadors and help cultivate support for the museum, as well as increase awareness and visibility.

Please contact Sarah Burleson at for more information, to renew or join, or to update your contact information.

We look forward to seeing you at the museum soon!
