Temporary Public Art Program
In 2018, Public Art UHS launched an ongoing temporary public art program at the University of Houston. It is its first program entirely funded by private support and the first among Texas universities. Extending from Wilhelmina’s Grove at the University of Houston, a beautiful green space at the heart of the campus’ Arts District and its gateway to public art, the temporary public art program serves as an active platform for short-term art installations, exhibitions, community-wide outreach and collaborative programming. Along with UHS’s permanent collection, the program provides the university community, local patrons and visitors from around the world with a unique place and way to experience thoughtful and thought-provoking artworks by a diverse roster of local, national and international artists.
