With an expected graduation date of May 2019 and intentions to continue studies

General Announcements, New Resource

Student Art Exhibit “Play and Process” by  Felicia Lourdes Leyva is now available in the UH Digital Library.

Leyva is a sculpture BFA student at the University of Houston. While she has experimented with several mediums, her work mainly focuses on her increasing interest in fiber arts. Known for her fun and colorful style, she enjoys bringing new life to everyday soft materials like yarn, foam, and felt. Her work was recently exhibited at The William R. Jenkins Architecture, Design and Art Library August-November 2018.

New Building Houston recordings online

General Announcements, New Resource, New Service

The Architecture, Design and Art Library has developed an online collection of interviews called Building Houston, which documents the oral history of Houston’s built environment, as told by the people who impacted it.  Architects, developers, planners, scholars, philanthropists, and community leaders discuss their work and its relationship to Houston’s urban fabric in this online collection.  Each subject is interviewed by a scholar or colleague who frames the discussion and provides context.  Ten recordings made earlier this year are now available in the UH Libraries’ audio/video repository.  Click on the link to see interviews with Leslie K. Elkins, Natalye Appel, James B. Thomas and others.
