Like art? What about boat parties? Or more accurately, parties that celebrate the newest public art installation comprised of small boats at the University of Texas?

Rising over 50 feet tall at the corner of 24th and Speedway, Nancy Rubins's Monochrome for Austin (pictured to the right in the middle of the construction process) is the largest public art piece on the UT campus, assembled from 70 aluminum canoes and small boats suspended in the air.

To celebrate the unveiling, Landmarks — the public art program at UT — will be hosting a Q&A with Rubins followed by a party at the Norman Hackerman Building with food, drinks and live music. Both events are free and open to the public, but a RSVP is required.
