Eastside as Found by Jae Boggess – Funded by a grant from Rice Design Alliance, this photography exhibit documents industrial and commercial buildings east of downtown. In danger of demolition, these neglected and vacant buildings help tell the story of Houston as a repeated boomtown and have the potential to define a unique sense of place as these neighborhoods change. Architect Jae Boggess hopes that the exhibit will prompt a dialogue about what will become of our city’s built history.

Encounter: Meeting Points on Buffalo Bayou is a collaboration between students from the University of Houston Graphic Design and Creative Writing programs with funding support from the Mitchell Center for the Arts. The exhibit features proposals for site-based installations and engagement events to be held on sites along Buffalo Bayou’s East Sector in spring 2018. The installations express an interpretation of the history, economy, resilience, culture and community values of the East End and Fifth Ward communities as they relate to the bayou and green spaces.

On view through January 29 (Monday–Friday from 9 am–5 pm).

Climate Change Reading Group @ Axelrad Beer Garden
Dec 7 @ 6:30 pm

Image result for houston sierra clubWhat does climate change mean for Houston? More Harvey-like severe weather events, more devastating storm surge, more energy use dependent on fossil fuels, wider spread tropical disease, or more heat index days and ozone? If you are interested in learning about climate change and identifying ways Houstonians can make a difference, then join the Houston Sierra Club reading group dedicated to climate change. The reading group will meet every month to discuss an article, book excerpt, or podcast related to climate change, with special focus on Houston. There will be four meetings at Axelrad Beer Garden at 6:30 PM. Each date has a specific theme:

10/5 Climate Change Overview
11/2 Climate Change in Texas
12/7 Solutions, Houston Style
1/4 Imagining the Future

The group will be limited to 15 people, and attendees will receive a confirmation and link to online assignments before the end of September. Be a part of this informative reading group by RSVPing online.
