Between Mountains and Sea: Arts of the Ancient Andes is an exhibition presented by the Blanton Museum of Art in partnership with the Department of Art and Art History that features a special selection of objects that illuminate the lifestyle, technological achievements, and ideology of pre-Inka cultures among the coastal Andes of South America.

The exhibition was conceived by the Blanton and guest-curator and department alumna Dr. Kimberly L. Jones (PhD in Art History, 2010), while she served as a UT Austin lecturer and curator of the Art and Art History Collection before her recent appointment as the Ellen and Harry S. Parker III Assistant Curator of the Arts of the Americas at the Dallas Museum of Art.

ARTnews recently included Between Mountain and Sea in a list of 13 museum exhibitions to see in spring 2014.
