The Blanton Museum of Art will host the Blanton Block Party, a day-to-night party that offers a wealth of activities, including the opportunity to experience Austin, the newly opened building designed by renowned American artist Ellsworth Kelly.

Attendees can visit Austin and its companion exhibition, "Form into Spirit;" explore the Blanton’s galleries; participate in family-friendly outdoor art making; listen to live music; and enjoy food and drinks from local eateries Chaiwalla, Pinkberry, Pueblo Viejo, The North Door, and the Blanton café.

The Bright Light Social Hour, Jackie Venson, Suzanna Choffel, Cowboy Diplomacy, Jane Ellen Bryant, and The Peterson Brothers are among the acts that will perform throughout the day on a stage set against the backdrop of the Texas State Capitol. Outdoor art making will include projects created by Industry Print Shop and Dirty Easel.
