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 Public Art Tour: How Art Is Made

Large pieces of public art are sometimes feats of structural engineering. Artists work with architects, engineers and contractors to help make their ideas a reality. Join Landmarks on Sunday, June 7 at 10 a.m. for a docent-led tour to learn about the construction process and materials in some of the commissioned works of art on The University of Texas at Austin campus. Tour members meet at Sol LeWitt's Circle with Towers in front of the Gates Dell Complex. All are welcome to attend and no reservation is required. Sunday walking tours commence rain or shine. Please dress accordingly.
