Landmarks Public Art Program

Landmarks is the public art program at The University of Texas at Austin that commissions new works of art for campus, installs extant works for permanent exhibition, and exhibits temporary works of video art. Through this process, Landmarks has acquired many media files — photographic and video documentation of existing works, files of video works that we have commissioned, and digital scans of certificates of authentication — which will soon be stored on Corral. Curators, students and professors on campus will use these materials for research and education purposes.

"As Landmarks has grown and acquired new works of public art for the University of Texas at Austin's campus, so has the program's collection of digital documentation. Corral provides Landmarks with a place to securely store these documents that include everything from an artists' source files for a work of video art to photographs recording construction processes to artist interview transcripts. Corral is an invaluable resource for Landmarks, enabling the creation of a digital archive that will no doubt serve future curators and scholars of contemporary public art."
