Blanton Art Museum

This afternoon my DD and I decided to get some culture. In order to do that, we went to the Blanton Art Museum in downtown Austin, TX. Because today is Thursday and on Thursdays the admission is free, was a big drawing point for us. I didn't take very many pictures. I did take ones that we thought were the best. That's kind of misleading though, because there were A LOT of really good paintings, photographs, sculptures, and displays. We spent two hours walking, talking, and looking. I don't know why, but I couldn't shake the sad feeling I had while looking. It could've been because it was around 3 p.m when we got there and we hadn't eaten anything since 11 a.m. Other than that, it was pretty cool.

Here are the four pictures I took. Hope you like them.

This is just a HUGE painting, so I had to get a picture of it.

I just really liked this one. Can't remember what it was named.

This isn't a painting, it's more like needle work?

So cool! Loved the pics and also loved the fact that there is a time you can experience art for free! That is hard to find around here--the closest I come is getting discount passes thru the local library.

From the picture, that last one looks like a quilt. I have seen that pattern as a quilt somewhere too. It is nice the art museum does not focus just on paintings.

Yeah, it could definitely be a quilt. When I was writing the blog my brain just couldn't think by looking at it, how it was made. Probably a quilt though.
