Talk location

The conference talks will be held at the Edgar A. Smith Building at the Blanton Museum of Art, located at 200 E Martin Luther King Jr Blvd (on the south end of the UT Austin campus).

A little bonus: your conference nametag gets you free admission to the exhibits at the Blanton, including the building "Austin" designed by Ellsworth Kelly which opened last February; here are an NYT writeup and video tour. This building is best seen when it's sunny, and before going in, you should first check in at the museum proper. The exhibits are closed on Monday, and free to all on Thursday (so, more crowded that day).

If you are coming in by car: parking is available at the Brazos Garage at 210 E Martin Luther King Jr Blvd (next door to the Blanton). We will validate, so the parking is free for conference participants.

Local restaurants

Here is a Google Map with locations of some restaurants and coffee spots near the conference site, or PDF list.


Here are a few area hotels (non-exhaustive list of course):

AirBNB is also fine (in particular, if we are offering you travel support, this support can be used to reimburse expenses at any area hotel, or AirBNB expenses.)
