The Pop-Up Library program began in 2018 in collaboration with Blaffer Art Museum and the Architecture, Design, and Art Library to introduce students to two campus resources. Each pop-up consists of curated art books and  featured catalogs for sale.

Studio Sessions

Blaffer Art Museum offers Studio Sessions the first Thursday of every month during the fall and spring semesters. Students are invited to join drop-in tours and hands-on activities to better connect with current exhibitions. The Blaffer regularly partners with the William R. Jenkins Architecture, Design, and Art Library to a host a pop-up at each event where students can check out art books and supplies.


CollageShop is presented in partnership with Public Art UHS. This workshop is free and open to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis. Space is limited and registration is required. All workshop materials will be provided to participants.

Tay Butler is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Houston while teaching and studying in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Currently an MFA candidate of the University of Arkansas’ Photography and Studio Art program, he received his BFA in Photography and Digital Media from the University of Houston. His work We Are Still Searching…, currently on view at UH’s Louise J. Moran Fine Arts Courtyard, uses the medium of collage to revisit the Great Migration of six million African Americans out of the South, as well as explores the current Re-Migration to the South. The 14-foot-tall collage includes items such as old magazine advertisements from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s as well as billboard images passed by Black Americans along their north/southward routes.
