Project History

The monumental sculpture Clock Knot by Mark di Suvero exemplifies the power of public art to transform the university’s landscape. Its installation coincided with the opening of the exhibition Reimagining Space: The Park Place Gallery Group in 1960s New York at the Blanton Museum of Art from 28 September – 18 January 2009.

The sculpture is an early initiative of Landmarks. Located on the northeast corner of Dean Keeton and Speedway, Clock Knot stands 41 feet tall and was acquired by Landmarks for its permanent collection.

Linda Dalrymple Henderson, professor of Art History and guest curator of the Park Place exhibition, contributed the artist essay.

The installation is made possible with a generous contribution from the College of Fine Arts. Landmarks would like to thank the artist, Ivana Mestrovich, Lowell McKegney, Sean Paul Lorenz, Steve Henry, Paula Cooper Gallery, and the Cockrell School of Engineering for their support.
