Today at work we got to take a field trip down to the Blanton Museum to check out the “Birth of Cool” exhibit. It’s a smaller exhibit than I was expecting, but it was pretty cool nonetheless. It made me want to go home and watch Mad Men again.
On a side note, it was my first time at the Blanton, so I strolled around and checked out some of the other areas. The stairs alone are pretty awesome. The Modern & Contemporary Prints & Drawings area wasn’t quite what I’d hoped to be, but the European Prints & Drawings were a nice surprise (I love me some Alfonse Mucha).
The shop across the atrium was expensive, as expected, and the coffee shop just looked expensive. However, all in all it was a great experience. It’s in a very nice and well manicured little area. I wholly recommend a visit if you get the chance. Thursday’s are free too!
