Created by a team of students from Texas Applied ARts, the Waller Creek Monster Habitat is one of the light sculptures that make up Waterloo Greenway Conservancy’s Creek Show, which started Nov. 7 at Waller Creek between 9th and 12th streets.
Step into a whimsical world of play as you enter into the Creek Monster’s Habitat! Texas Applied Arts students have been hard at work this semester designing and constructing a monster habitat for Waterloo Greenway Conservancy’s Creekshow. The 2019 Annual Creek Show starting November 7, 2019 will showcase interactive light-based art installations to be featured along Waller Creek through downtown Austin.
The Battle of Waller Creek—when students protested the destruction of several dozen trees along UT Austin's urban stream—was 50 years ago, and the School of Architecture has produced a video to remember this event.
Through art installations around campus, Fashion Anonymous aims to educate students about fast fashion production. This project was funded by Green Fund, grants created by pooling money from each enrolled student.
The Office of Sustainability is pleased to announce the 2019-20 Green Fund grants. A committee of three faculty-staff and six students reviewed 28 projects, ultimately funding 17 for a total amount just over $300,000.
