Today, the presence of world-class works of art inject color and creativity at all of the UH System universities. And now more than ever, groups of both novices and aficionados are still coming – embarking on tours of these campus treasures.
“Our Public Art Collection has been a hidden gem in Houston for too long, and it’s time our community and city understand what we have here,” said Mike Guidry, curator of Public Art of the University of Houston System.
Last fall, the UH System embarked on a series of outdoor public art tours. The lunch-hour art walks are scheduled for the first Friday of each month and visitors can learn the unique story of each piece and the artist who created it. From Carlos Cruz-Diez’s sculpture “Double Physichromie” to Luis Jimenez’s “Fiesta Dancers,” there is plenty to see.
