FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Explore exhibitions by architectural designer Jae Boggess and students of the UH School of Art. Both of these exhibits feature buildings and landmarks located east of downtown Houston along Buffalo Bayou, which is relevant to Buffalo Bayou Partnership’s newly launched East Sector master plan. This major planning effort along Buffalo Bayou going east will incorporate East Sector neighborhoods and existing structures to establish a pioneering precedent where green space can be a catalyst for inclusive growth and community development.

This East Sector-focused exhibition will appropriately on view at Sunset Coffee Building, Buffalo Bayou Partnership’s administrative offices now through January 29th. (Closed from 12/25 — 1/1 and reopens 1/2.)

Eastside as Found by Jae Boggess
Funded by a grant from The Rice Design Alliance, this photography exhibit documents industrial and commercial buildings east of downtown. In danger of demolition, these neglected and largely vacant buildings help tell the story of Houston as a repeated boomtown and have the potential to define a unique sense of place as these neighborhoods change. Architectural designer Jae Boggess hopes that the exhibit will prompt a dialogue about what will become of our city’s built history.

Encounter: Meeting Points on Buffalo Bayou
Encounter: Meeting Points on Buffalo Bayou is a collaboration between students from the University of Houston Graphic Design and Creative Writing programs with funding support from the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts. The exhibit features proposals for site-based installations and engagement events to be held on sites along Buffalo Bayou's East Sector in spring 2018. The installations express an interpretation of the history, economy, resilience, culture and community values of the East End and Fifth Ward communities as they relate to the bayou and green spaces.
