    Wally Workman Gallery: Helmut Barnett

    You know how good it is to see this exhibition gearing up for display? When they say Barnett's work features "geometric and organic forms on large canvases as well as large-scale collages incorporating found material," that only whets our visual appetite. But then, we've reported on the man before. Come see what wonders the longtime Austinite's been creating in the years between his last solo show and this new one at WWG.

    Your Playable City: Shadowing

    Here's a fun new Downtown installation, created by Jonathan Chomko and Matthew Rosier, in which streetlights play back the shadows of those who pass beneath them. No, for real. As a citizen walks under the lights, "the shadow of a previous visitor will walk, hop, or dance beside them, and then their own movements will be captured and displayed to the next passerby." And here's a map of locations.
