Last night I happened to catch the rerun of Austin Now on KLRU-G. The episode focused on the Blanton Museum of Art which is opening the last weekend of April. I knew the museum was coming along, but I didn’t realize it would be ready so soon! I’m excited. While the exterior looks very eh (like many other campus buildings), the interior space looks amazing. There is lots of natural light and open space. One of the galleries I saw reminded me very much of the Kimbell (one of my favorite museums in the state). They say that the Blanton will be the largest museum in the nation affiliated with a university.
