Nancy Rubins’ "Monochrome for Austin" Celebration and Q&A

Join Landmarks in celebrating artist Nancy Rubins’ Monochrome for Austin on 5 March 2015. The sculpture, a large-scale assemblage made from seventy aluminum canoes and small boats, is located at the corner of 24th Street and Speedway. Commissioned by Landmarks, Monochrome for Austin draws its support from a steel armature and intertwining cables and stands fifty feet tall, making it the largest sculpture on campus to date.

The celebration will feature a public Q&A session with Rubins at 5:30 p.m., followed by a reception with live music from Austin afrobeat group Hard Proof, food and drinks at 6:30 p.m. at the Norman Hackerman Building. The event is sponsored by Landmarks and admission is free to the public with advance registration.

Register by 3 March to secure your spot for the reception. Space is limited and registration is required.
