The Explore UT event was rain or shine. Today we received a steady dose of rain. I saw soccer playing robots, a projection dance piece, a few other events, and rain. Yes, mostly rain.
This was my favorite part of the day at UT. MOVE! A performance by the Dance Repertory Theatre. The show goes through March 14th according to their website, so get out there and support them. 🙂
The University of Texas Tower is almost always in view as you stroll around the campus. Today’s added bonus was a great steel drum band to send you off to the Caribbean.
There is a course at UT called Shakespeare at Winedale. The idea is to learn about Shakespeare by performing his plays. We received a small taste of this in the sunny courtyard of Calhoun Hall, and it was fun.
A giant Sculpture of canoes. Nice! Just another day at UT.
Ok. Yes. Things are bigger in Texas. The Texas Memorial Museum has a Great Hall with the “Quetzalcoatalus northropi, the Texas Pterosaur, a flying reptile unearthed in West Texas by The University of Texas at Austin scientists. With a wingspan of 40 feet, Quetzalcoatalus northropi is the largest flying creature ever found.” Did ya’ll know that this was on campus?
The Visual Arts Center did not disappoint. It supplied me with several opportunities for photographs.
No campus trip is complete without sticking your nose into the Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium to see what’s going on.
When they build stuff in Austin, they don’t mess around. I was lucky enough to watch some of the Lacrosse match under the cranes this morning on my first trek across campus.
