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.

O N E E V E R Y O N E: A Conversation with Ann Hamilton
Join Landmarks and the Humanities Institute for a public talk to celebrate the unveiling of visual artist Ann Hamilton’s O N E E V E R Y O N E
in Austin. Internationally recognized for the sensory surrounds of her large-scale multimedia installations and public projects, Hamilton created a community-based, site-responsive portrait series. She used the images to create 71 porcelain enamel portrait panels for the Dell Medical School, a 900-page book, a newspaper with contributions by scientists, philosophers, poets, and essayists, and a website for the public to download her photographs.
The Humanities Institute public program will feature readings by Matthew Goulish, Brian rotman, and Natalie Shapero, and a discussion with Ann Hamilton led by Pauline Strong. Their conversation complements the Humanities Institute’s 2017 theme of Health, Well-Being, and Healing.

Drop by the Dell Medical School’s Health Learning Building to collect a free copy of the 900-page book designed by Ann Hamilton for O N E E V E R Y O N E
