Heights Happenings: Jan 6- 12, 2010

TONIGHT! Wed, Jan 6, 6:30-7:30 PM: Informational Meeting on TXDoT's I-10 Feeder Road Project
  • This project will (more than likely) affect you. TXDoT representatives will be available to explain their plans for construction and answer questions.
  • For additional information, check out this post on Off The Kuff. Many people fear this will cause major flooding issues for the Heights, so show up and get the skinny.
  • Hosted by State Representative Jessica Farrar
  • Stevenson Elementary School (5410 Cornish St., Houston, TX 77007-4302)

Starting Jan 9, 2010: The Art Car Museum presents a retrospective of Houston artist Ron Hoover

  • "Ron Hoover was one of the most gifted artists of his generation and one of the few painters in Houston, Texas to achieve an original style. His death in 2008 was a terrible loss to the Houston community."


Closing this weekend, Jan 10: "rock, scissors, paper" at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

  • " 'rock, scissors, paper' features the work of five artists (from the U.S., England, and Taiwan) who use commercially printed found paper in their work. From cutting to folding, stitching, layering and collage, Claire Brewster, Renata Lucia, Inca Pan, former HCCC resident artist Lisa Qualls, and Wonil Suh use found pages, scraps, and prints in their work—sometimes as the sole material and sometimes as an element."

Friday, Jan 8, 6:00 PM: House of Blues "Texas High School Rock Off"

  • It's exactly what it sounds like. At last tally, 4 local bands competing for $500 and a chance to open for some yet unknown band at HOB. What's more fun than some bands with heart? Someday it could be your kids!
  • Tickets start at $6.75
