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.

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.
