University Events Center

Completion: August 2020

Outside of the University Events Center, The Rising Star emerges from the ground to embody a vision of the past, present and future. With a form and colors that reflect the spirit of Texas State University, the star is a 3-dimensional color matrix of structural geometry. Full spectrum interactive LED lights at nodes of the matrix provide dramatic illumination. The Rising Star is a gathering place where students, faculty and visitors may come together, be inspired, and feel connected to Texas State. It is a welcome and a passage to the many exciting events to be experienced at the Events Center.

LBJ Student Center

Completion: September 2020

In 2020 A+A worked with Texas State to find a meaningful statement piece for the new LBJ Student Center. After conducting a national call-to-artist, an artist team was selected to create a pieces that would honor the past president who graduated from the University. Walking under the dimensional textile artwork, different words and phrases from LBJ’s speeches come into focus. It is an unforgettable experience that inspires conversation daily!
