International artist, Josef Kristofoletti completed his third Austin mural, "Tau Ceti", in November 2018. Stretching 10 floors up the parking garage on the corner of Brazos and Second streets, the mural now holds the title of the tallest public artwork in Austin.

 

The mural is a result of the Capital Improvement Project (CIP) to upgrade the parking structure, originally built with only a west-facing entrance, with an additional east-facing entrance. The garage is now meant to serve the nearby Austin Convention Center.
