New Works for the Collection is the new exhibition at The Blanton highlighting more than sixty new acquisitions from among the hundreds of works recently acquired through gift and purchase. Be sure to stop by and see an impressive self-portrait by artist Mequitta Ahuja (shown) and do not miss Charles Gaines’ video collaboration with Hoyun Son. Argentinean modernists Juan Batlle Planas and Gyula Kosice are included along with an engraving after Michelangelo’s fresco of the Last Judgment by Giorgio Ghisi, which is among several prints in the exhibition that reproduce works by Michelangelo.
