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.
