Tau Ceti by artist Josef Kristofoletti is the tallest artwork in Austin. This ten-story mural creates an unparalleled optic experience as sunlight from surrounding buildings reflects upon the painted color spectrum throughout the day. The title of the artwork, Tau Ceti, references a single star in the constellation Cetus that is spectrally similar to our own sun.
