Landmarks Public Art Program

Landmarks brings the finest works of public art to The University of Texas at Austin in order to support the university as a leading research institution, to enhance its aesthetic character, and to provide a source of civic pride and welfare. Its projects are located throughout the main campus and are viewed by thousands of people every day.

In 2008, Landmarks was launched with the purpose of developing a cohesive collection of public art from a curatorial perspective. Today its projects beautify the main campus and engage visitors and the university community with art of the highest quality.

Public art located outdoors is available for viewing at all times. Get started by visiting the Interactive Map provided on the Landmarks website. Visitors may also stream or download the Audio Tour on any Web enabled mobile device.

Landmarks’ first initiative brought to the university twenty-eight modern and contemporary sculptures on long-term loan from one of the world’s greatest museums, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. These extraordinary sculptures provide an art historical foundation upon which the university is building its own collection.

Landmarks at Night

Since the Landmarks public art collection at The University of Texas at Austin is accessible 24/7, many of the works are beautifully lit in the evening. Sculptures that spark thoughtful and dynamic conversation under the bright sun suddenly become quiet and contemplative, twinkling under the night sky.

Join Landmarks on Sunday, December 6 at 4:45 p.m. at the Student Activity Center (SAC) rooftop for an extended walking tour that includes visits to both James Turrell’s Skyspace The Color Inside and Ben Rubin’s And That’s The Way It Is, both viewable only after sunset. Space is limited to 25 people. Please RSVP to by 2 December.
