    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.

    Artworks Gallery: In the Flesh

    The depiction of the human body in its purest form is challenging to capture in most media, but that's what Austin artist Arye Shapiro has been driven to do for the past 20 years – most recently focusing on painting the human figure in oil.
    July 1-Aug. 13. Reception: Sat., July 9, 2-5pm

    Carver Museum: Peace to the Queen

    The photographer, humanitarian, and educator Jamel Shabazz presents a career retrospective spanning four decades of work, featuring candid portraits of women of color – as curated by Ja’nell Ajani. "At a moment when Black and Brown women are more visibly leading the charge around movements for racial and economic justice, this exhibition has materialized and aligned at a critical moment in American history and Shabazz’s career."

    Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition

    "This special collection of the artist’s renowned ceiling frescoes from the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel is reproduced in a format that allows viewers to get face-to-face with the [copies of the] masterpieces." Note: See how the promotional image is of a person taking a photo of the reproduction of the famous artwork? Baudrillard, we reckon, wept. YMMV.
    Tuesdays-Sundays. Through Aug. 8. $20.20 ($14.14 for kids).
