Public art has the capacity to resonate deeply, stimulate curiosity, and inspire the imagination in unexpected ways. The collection on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin is no exception. This catalog features recent acquisitions, including a community-based photography project by Ann Hamilton, a 4,000-square-foot mural by Jos Parl , the complete Landmarks Video archive, as well as works by Marc Quinn, Nancy Rubins, Michael Ray Charles, James Turrell, and Sol LeWitt, among others. Each entry features color photography and a biographical and descriptive overview, and the catalog includes a detailed fold-out map of the collection.

One of the most distinguishing features on campus, the public art program shapes impressions of the university and offers a distinctive setting for memorable experiences. 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 six decades. Free and accessible to all, it enriches the lives of students and visitors alike. Discover why Landmarks is a point of pride for the university community and all people of the state of Texas.
