Had a beautiful weekend with a good friend Kate a few weeks back and we went to Austin Java (yum!) and hit up the Blanton Museum of Art that was actually quite a bit bigger that we both thought it was. There was a huge exhibit on 19th-Century prints which made me want to retake Printmaking, a Latin America Gallery, large Contemporary Gallery and (the reason why we went) Masterpieces by artists like Monet, Degas and Manet among others.
There was a huge modern and contemporary art gallery that was pretty incredible. This is a permanent collection so go check it out! Btw, lower right is an installation called “How to Build Cathedrals” by Cildo Meireles. The top is cow bones with a column of communion wafers leading down to the floor that is covered with pennies. They used 600,000 pennies, 800 communion wafers and 2000 cattle bones!
