LANDMARKS - Public Arts Program at UT

 Catherine Zinser, Education Coordinator for LANDMARKS
Introduced by Lion Teel Clark

At this Thursday's noon luncheon at TSBVI, we will hear about the University of Texas' public art program, LANDMARKS enriches the lives of students and visitors by presenting art that is broadly accessible and free to all. More than forty works of modern and contemporary art are on view throughout the 433-acre campus. The collection not only enhances the beauty of the landscape, but also supports scholarship and learning by demonstrating significant art historical trends from the past seven decades.

Featured in this presentation will be Skyspace by James Turrell, a fascinating piece where the artistic medium is light—not paintings that depict light, nor sculptures that incorporate light, but simply light itself.

Want to see for yourself?  That evening we will gather at the ‘Skyspace Exhibit by James Turrell’:

  • Where: Student Activity Center, just north of Gregory Gymnasium on UT Campus. Here is a map.
  • What: Tour of fully immersive art installation featuring amazing lighting effects by world renowned artist. Event is free and open to the public.
  • When: Arrive in the food court on the first floor of the SAC by 6:30 pm to order a meal and eat before the tour starts at 7:10. Food options are on your own and include Taco Cabana, Chick-fil-A, and ZEN. At 7:00 we will be guided to the 3d floor for the art exhibit. You may leave at any time but allow at least 15-45 minutes inside the exhibit.
  • Parking: Brazos Garage just east of the Blanton Museum on MLK. See map for parking and campus plan.

What else?: Happy Hour at 5:15pm at Scholz Garten 1607 San Jacinto., hosted by Lion President Scott Hendrix.  Parking is usually free at this time in the garages along San Jacinto (unless there's a big event nearby). Scott says he will buy the first beer for the first 10 Lions (or new member candidates) who arrive.
