    Landmarks: Self-Guided Walking Tour

    Well, it's always an event, isn't it? When you can take your smartphone to access self-guided tours of the outdoor public art sited by UT's award-winning Landmarks program? The answer (as long as the streets and sidewalks aren't dangerous with all this newfangled ice and snow) is a hearty, full-throated YES.

    Women & Their Work: One Bad Monkey

    Through soft sculptures and draping foam relief tapestries, Steef Crombach examines the secret life of local icons like the Wheatsville Raptor and the Big Star Bingo Gorilla, exploring each character’s evolution as its identity morphs over time and place.

    ICOSA: I Believe In Things I Cannot See

    An exhibition that features collaborative work from Tammie Rubin and Darcie Book? The answer is yes, and our recommendation is high for this show in which the artists investigate how to turn their collective space into an object – where awareness of body and movement become essential – with large, sculptural forms of paper creating a spatial dichotomy, providing the opportunity to travel between two distinct realms.
    Opening reception: Fri., May 27, 7-10pm

    Lydia Street Gallery: David Amdur Memorial Exhibition

    David Amdur was a staple of the Austin art community for much of his life, from his days at UT, to Amdur Gallery in downtown Austin, to the dream home that he designed and built. Drawing, painting, printmaking, music posters, wood furniture, stone sculpture: He was a master of so many forms. This newest exhibition at Lydia Street Gallery, "A Light In the Wood," celebrates the man's life and legacy.
    Through June 25

    Akirash Online

    Sure, Austin's Olaniyi Rasheed Akindiya aka AKIRASH has an exhibition at the Carver Museum right now – and the place is closed, of course. But this Lagos-born artist also happens to have one of the most robust websites around, though you'll need a mighty big screen to get the best effect of his huge and colorful mixed-media creations and performance pieces.

    Blanton Museum of Art: MemWars

    Many artists work in multiple mediums, but for Lubbock-raised Terry Allen, music, performance, writing, and visual artwork are truly all part of the same practice. As a visual artist, he often creates immersive sculptural installations with an aspect of performance, incorporated through projections and video. For this ninth installment in the Blanton’s Contemporary Project series, Allen reveals a three-channel video installation and a related group of drawings.

    HRC: Henry David Thoreau

    You know who, way back in the day, had the whole self-isolation thing down pretty damn well? "The author of Walden and Civil Disobedience" is the answer. Of course, Thoreau was only in "semi-seclusion" out there in the north country woods; but what he had to say – what he wrote, in many instances – is a valuable resource for people in these socially distanced times. Here, take yourself a virtual stroll through Thoreau's manuscripts (and letters and more) as beautifully archived in UT's own Harry Ransom Center.

Bonus: The gallery's project space reveal's the new Ipinya installation by Akirash.

Recommended: Stop by and breathe in the air, enjoy the lawns and gardens and the many examples of world-class sculpture arrayed across the property, and (as Frankie used to say) r-e-l-a-x.
