Landmarks at Night

Landmarks Public Art Program

Since the Landmarks public art collection 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, 3 December at 5 p.m. at the Student Activity Center (SAC) rooftop for an extended walking tour. The tour will begin with a viewing of the hour-long light sequence at James Turrell’s Skyspace The Color Inside and conclude at Ben Rubins' And That's The Way It Is. Space is limited to 25 people.
ADMISSION: Free

For forty years the talented comedy troupe Esther’s Follies has entertained and enlightened Austinites and visitors with its political satire, sketch comedy, and rip-roaring musical numbers. The Austin History Center invites you to come learn more about one of Austin’s premiere entertainment groups at a book talk and presentation with Jesse Sublett, author of the new book “Esther’s Follies: The Laughs, the Gossip, and the Story Behind Texas’ Most Celebrated Comedy Troupe”. Several key performers from the troupe will also be on hand to answer questions and sign books. The book signing will follow the program and light refreshments will be served. The event is free and open to the public.
