And That’s The Way It Is

Walter Cronkite left an indelible mark on the world of broadcast news. Today, journalists aren’t the only ones inspired by the anchor-legend. Ben Rubin’s public installation, And That’s The Way It Is, projects an interwoven grid of text onto the Communications A building. Rubin pieces together transcripts from Cronkite’s broadcasts with today’s news to create a tapestry of information. And That’s The Way It Is is presented by Landmarks, the public art program on The University of Texas at Austin campus, and is free and visible every evening in the Walter Cronkite Plaza.
