Last fall, we launched Listening with Landmarks, a digital initiative in which Austin music notables were invited to create playlists in response to their favorite works of art from our collection. Contributors included everyone from Peter Bay, the conductor of Austin Symphony Orchestra, to Stephanie Bergara, lead singer of Bidi Bidi Banda—a Selena tribute band, to celebrated singer/songwriters Jackie Venson and Walker Lukens. The range of songs featured was terrific! They provided insight into the tastes and musical stylings of our participants, as well as offered new ways of engaging with Landmarks installations.

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN! We invite you to create your very own Spotify playlist in response to a work in our collection! Playlists may include any musical genres and songs, provided they contain no offensive language or content. Landmarks staff will choose 1-2 playlists to be featured on our Spotify channel, website, social media platforms and in our monthly eNews, PLUS the winning contributors will receive a Landmarks tote bag and catalog!

To submit your playlist for consideration, please send a link to a Spotify playlist you have created, along with the title of the Landmarks work of art that inspired it to Stephanie.sandoval@austin.utexas.edu. Deadline is Saturday, August 22nd.

Note: Those without Spotify may simply send us a list of songs and we will create the playlist for you!
