This unique Austin duo makes installing art, well, an art

Editor's note: CultureMap is proud to present the latest installment in our partnership with KLRU's documentary series Arts in Context. This unique series finds and examines stories about the arts in Austin and the people who make this such a vibrant and creative city.

This winter KLRU takes a behind-the-scenes look at museum art installation with Austin Art Services. Experts in this crucial (yet often hidden) process, Kirk Anders and Jeremy Burks bring craftsmanship, design and creativity to placing every piece of art. With each endeavor, they continue to help museums, artists and art owners to express and realize their visions. 

In the video above, Anders and Burks (along with a little help from CultureMap contributor Matthew John Winters) are creating "Weaving the Past: 101 years of the Interior Design Education at the University of Texas at Austin," a three-day event that took place in October 2013 on the UT campus.

KLRU-TV, Austin PBS is dedicated to telling stories that entertain, inspire and change our lives. KLRU highlights what makes Austin unique – whether music, arts or public issues – by creating and distributing award-winning original content. In addition to Arts in Context, KLRU produces several series including Austin City Limits, Central Texas Gardener, Civic Summit and Overheard with Evan Smith.
