Blanton Museum of Art

About Face: Portraiture as Subject

The Blanton Museum of Art at The University of Texas at Austin created an audio tour for the upcoming exhibition, About Face: Portraiture as Subject. The exhibition, which is organized by The Blanton and comprised almost entirely of works from the Blanton permanent collection, gathers together 40 portraits in diverse mediums and across a range of time periods to examine how personality and aspects of character are portrayed in art. The audio tour content focuses on offering visitors information about the subjects of the works on view and, in some cases, about the relationship between the sitter and the artist. The audio tour may be accessible via personal cell phones and on the Blanton website. It is also available in both Spanish and English.
