The Blanton Museum of Art at The University of Texas at Austin is kicking off its newly announced grounds redesign with a free online community celebration. #BlantonNewGrounds
Host: The Contemporary Austin-Laguna Gloria, 3809 W 35th St
Date: February 20th 2021
The Contemporary Austin’s new public program series, A Walk in the Park, features monthly guided walks + creative workshop activities to observe and map Laguna Gloria in a variety of ways, starting with the program’s 2021 Observer-in-Residence, Ann Armstrong of Odditree Society.
For this month’s program Armstrong will guide a walk through Laguna Gloria’s grounds focused on expanding the way we see in order to better appreciate our arboreal kin. After the walk, participants will be split up to explore the park individually, looking for captivating trees to document. The program will conclude with attendees sharing their findings and compiling a collective guide to the trees of Laguna Gloria.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a sketch book, camera, pen and paper, or other medium to reflect with during the program. This is an outdoor event and guests will be walking on uneven surfaces. Masks are required and social distancing will be observed. Each time slot has a limited capacity.
