Peter Reginato's Kingfish, Walter Cronkite Plaza,
2504 Whitis Ave
It's America's birthday and time to celebrate Old Glory! Colors, like the red, white and blue of our nation's flag, have strong symbolic meaning and are carefully chosen by artists. Join Landmarks, the public art program of The University of Texas at Austin, for a docent-led tour and explore how and why artists use color in monumental outdoor sculpture.
Meet at 10 a.m. on Sunday, the 5th of July at Peter Reginato's Kingfish on Whitis Avenue, between 24th and Dean Keeton Streets in the Walter Cronkite Plaza. Free and open to the public. Sunday walking tours commence rain or shine. Please dress accordingly.

Fieldwork Artist Talk:
Melissa Dubbin and Aaron S. Davidson
Jones Center
July 16, 7 pm
The Contemporary Austin presents artists, curators, and researchers in residence with Fieldwork: Marfa, an international researcher-in- residence program coordinated by ESBA Nantes Métropole and
HEAD-Genève. Melissa Dubbin and Aaron S. Davidson discuss their work producing forms, objects, images, and experiences and their research in Marfa. Attentive to the materializing of the immaterial— how to photograph temperature or wind, how to sculpt and photograph sound, how to formulate or make an image audible— since 1998, the artists have explored together the way time makes its mark and how objects can record, hold, and reveal embedded narratives.

Film: Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists
Jones Center Community Room
July 30. 7 pm
A lavishly illustrated romp through the art of the Chicago Imagists, the Second City scene that challenged Pop art’s status quo in the 1960s, then faded from view. Forty years later, its funk and grit inspire artists from Jeff Koons to Chris Ware, making the Imagists the most famous artists you never knew. This Austin premiere features a Q&A with artist Sarah Canright and film producer Brian Ashby. (109 min.)
$5/FREE for Members
