UH Public Art Day
Sat, April 22, 2017, 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM CDT
Public art collection tours will take place every 30 minutes from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. and will highlight some of the unique and diverse pieces that dot the campus at the University of Houston. In addition, tours of the Blaffer Art Museum will be available.
Two art-making activities – printmaking and a collaborative two-dimensional project – will spark the imagination of participants as they draw connections between the visual arts experienced through the tours with text, language arts, writing and image to make their own artworks. Finished pieces may be displayed in the café area of the Blaffer Art Museum.
There will also be a scavenger hunt focused on the public art collection that will include a drawing for a prize basket at 2:30 p.m. Catered finger foods will be available to guests.

What is the Public Art Collection?
The University of Houston Public Art Collection comprises more than 400 works across the UH System, including nearly 300 pieces found on the UH campus. The collection contains works by local, regional, national and international artists, across all forms of media and style. This is provided to the community through funds set aside from campus construction and renovation costs as a result of an initiative approved by the Texas Legislature in 1969. For more information about where to find these pieces and view them for yourself, visit www.uh.edu/uh-collection.
