UH's Incredible Public Art Collection Celebrates 50 Years

This month the program commemorates its 50th anniversary with an al fresco celebration, a book launch ( On Site: 50 years of Public Art of the University of Houston System, Scala Arts & Heritage Publishers), and tons of tours through the main campus, as well as those in Downtown, Clear Lake, Sugar Land, and Victoria. There’s no better time to plan a visit than now, says director and chief curator María Gaztambide. “We’re at a point where we have a truly critical mass of works.” Adds her fellow curator Michael Guidry, “The collection really is an interesting timeline of the development of public art in America.”
