YardWorks is a partnership between Public Art UHS and the School of the Art at the University of Houston. It is a biennial program granting Houston-based emerging artists early exhibition opportunities for their site-specific installations and public art projects. The program includes a professional critique component as well as a guided experience along all stages of the exhibition process; from concept development to fabrication to installation. Commissions remain on view from June through December at the Louise J. Moran Fine Arts Courtyard, in the heart of the University of Houston’s Arts District.
