Keep Houston Beautiful Honors Public Art of UHS and UH Sustainability Initiatives

(Patrick) #1

University of Houston is the recipient of six Mayor’s Proud Partners Landmark Awards sponsored by Keep Houston Beautiful (KHB). The annual awards recognize the exceptional efforts by individuals, communities, businesses and organizations to enhance the city’s landscape. From the ingenuity of architecture students who designed and fabricated a new Embarkation Station for Port Houston to UH’s efforts to give access to world-class public art, a wide range of UH projects earned accolades.

As a first-time Mayor’s Proud Partners Award recipient, Public Art of the University of Houston System (PAUHS) was honored for being a destination point for communities, neighbors and art lovers across the region to experience one of the largest university art collections in the U.S. With nearly 700 pieces spanning across the UH System, including University of Houston, University of Houston at Sugar Land, University of Houston-Downtown, University of Houston–Clear Lake and University of Houston–Victoria, PAUHS is offers a wide range of media and styles—free and open to the public.
