CMA 3.000 - Walter Cronkite Plaza

A building with projected text

The Walter Cronkite Plaza is a social hub bridging the CMA, CMB & HSM buildings on the UT Campus and is home to the art installation And That’s The Way It Is by artist Ben Rubin.

The piece projects an interwoven grid of text from two sources: closed caption transcripts of five live network news streams and archival transcripts of CBS Evening News broadcasts from the Cronkite era, including those housed at the university’s Briscoe Center for American History.
