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).
Hosted By: TWA and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service
