Public Tour: Persuasion: Messages & Meaning in Art

A picture is worth a thousand words, the adage goes, and artists have communicated messages and meaning with their art from the beginning of time. From the church-sponsored art of the 17th century to contemporary art reflecting on war, poverty, and politics, artists have sought to persuade the masses. See all of the ways artists convey messages on this tour of the Blanton’s newly reimagined permanent collection.

Admission is free on Thursdays.

The Blanton is located at the intersection of Congress Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Paid parking is available in the Brazos Garage on Brazos Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Parking is $4; bring your ticket with you to the museum.
