Date : Friday, September 1, 2023

Time: 12– 1 pm

Location: Blaffer Art Museum


Since 2018, the William R. Jenkins Architecture, Design, and Art Library has been partnering with Blaffer Art Museum to host Pop-Up Libraries each semester. It’s a fun and engaging way to promote services that provide instant connection to the UH community. Each pop-up consists of curated art books thematically related to the museum’s current exhibitions.

First Friday Exhibition Tours
We invite you to dive into Christopher Myers: of all creatures that can feel and think and John Guzman: Flesh and Bone with Erika Mei Chua Holum (assistant curator) and Nohelia Vargas Bolivar (docent). The conversational tour will explore how Myers’s fabric works, stained glass, and sculptures tell stories that mine the space between archive, myth, and the origin of ideas. We will uncover the methods and motivations behind the monumental paintings and drawings of John Guzman, which draw upon the artist’s experience living in San Antonio to make abstracted works including figurative elements, mining psychological and physical states.

**Free lunch provided after the Tour**

This event is free and open to all students
