The exhibit opened on September 27 and is set to run through December 7. It's free and open to the public. A description reads, "Tracing aspects of her long-standing interest in storytelling, as well as strangely unexpected intersections among art, music, technology, and language, Landfall highlights moments and stories from the world around us, as observed through Anderson's distinct gaze."
The exhibit was supposed to coincide with a performance a "rhythmic multi-media performance" of Landfall by Laurie and the Kronos Quartet at the university on October 16, but that performance was cancelled and is being rescheduled for the 2014-2015 Texas Performing Arts season. Stay tuned for more info on that.
