Returning for its fifth year, Sound in Sculpture showcases original music composed and performed by UT students inspired by works in the public art collection. Each performance takes place against the backdrop of a 4,000 square foot, site-specific mural by José Parlá. Commissioned by Landmarks, the public art program of The University of Texas at Austin, “Amistad América” renders Austin through the artist’s eyes, with a palette that evokes its vast skies, abundant nature, and pulsing urban core. The painting suggests a continental map with routes that connect Austin to a much larger ecology. Two rounds of performances, starting 6:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in Robert B. Rowling Hall, will be followed by a reception. Parking is available AT&T Hotel and Conference Center.
