Support public art on campus!
As the public art program at The University of Texas at Austin, Landmarks provides free access to 41 works of modern and contemporary art to everyone, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For many, the collection provides an opportunity to engage with great works of art for the first time.
For students of all majors, regular interaction with public art increases creative and critical thinking skills and develops empathy and cultural awareness. It even fosters greater preparedness and competitiveness in the job market as employers want independent thinkers and problem solvers.
While major construction projects pay for the art at UT, Landmarks needs your help to maintain and conserve the collection, train student volunteers, and offer outreach and educational programs.
Free monthly walking tours are available to the public on the first Sunday of each month. Annual dog walking and bike tours are also offered. Self-guided tours and children's activity guides are always available online. Visit our events page and join us. We’d love to see you!
