Landmarks recently announced the return of Sound in Sculpture, our annual collaboration with the Butler School of Music and Texas Performing Arts. In advance of the program, we sat down with one of this year’s composers, Thomas Rodriguez. A 3rd year undergraduate student pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Minor in Arts Management and Administration, Rodriguez wrote a work inspired by Joel Perlman’s Square Tilt.
As UT’s public art program, Landmarks enriches the lives of students and campus visitors by making great works of art broadly accessible and free for all. This year, we are raising funds to support the Landmarks Preservation Guild (LPG), a committed group of volunteer interns who examine and maintain the modern and contemporary art in the Landmarks collection.
Sound in Sculpture features student-composed music written in response to works of art from the Landmarks collection. Presented in partnership with Texas Performing Arts and the Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music, this year’s program will take place on April 22 at 7:00 PM. Musical performances will be streamed on Vimeo, along with commentary from the participating composers.

On March 13, 2020 Landmarks announced the suspension of all in-person events, screenings, and tours in response to COVID-19. Like other arts organizations, we had to quickly retool our offerings to make them available in ways that were safe but still inspiring. At this one year anniversary of the pandemic, we are taking a look back at some of the digital initiatives we created to bring art to you, wherever you are.
