In Texas – An Old Museum Gets A New Home

Austin, Texas’ Blanton Museum opens a new $83 million gallery. “For a museum that claims one of the country’s oldest and largest Latin American collections and a vast selection of prints, the upgrade could not be more welcome. Previously the Blanton’s displays were crammed into a bland, boxlike area in the university’s art building. At least that was its own space: until 2001, the collection occupied two floors of the humanities research center.”
