    Artworks Gallery: In the Flesh

    The depiction of the human body in its purest form is challenging to capture in most media, but that's what Austin artist Arye Shapiro has been driven to do for the past 20 years – most recently focusing on painting the human figure in oil.

    Blanton Museum of Art: MemWars

    Many artists work in multiple mediums, but for Lubbock-raised Terry Allen, music, performance, writing, and visual artwork are truly all part of the same practice. As a visual artist, he often creates immersive sculptural installations with an aspect of performance, incorporated through projections and video. For this ninth installment in the Blanton’s Contemporary Project series, Allen reveals a three-channel video installation and a related group of drawings.
