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 Docent-Led Bike Tour

Spring is in full swing, which makes this the perfect time for the return of the Landmarks Bike Tour! Austin Bike Tours and Rentals has partnered with Landmarks once again to provide a docent-led bike tour of the public art collection on The University of Texas at Austin campus. The 90 minute, five-mile adventure will begin at Austin Bike Tours and Rentals at 3rd and Congress. Together with a guide, the group will bike to campus, meet a Landmarks docent, and explore public art at The University of Texas at Austin. The event is free to those who bring their own bikes, and on-site rentals are $20.

Space is limited! Reserve your spot by Saturday, 2 May on the Austin Bike Tours and Rentals website. You can also give them a call at 512.277.0609. Indicate in the subject line that this is for the “Landmarks Bike Tour,” and let them know whether or not you’ll need to rent a bike.
