When: March 1st, 2020

Earthly Bodies: The Houston Brick Archive is a conceptual project spearheaded by Houston based artist Alexander Squire that highlights a large collection of commercial bricks salvaged from various sites around the city of Houston. The bricks are studied with scrupulous attention paid to their organic and expressive form and materiality. An archeological enterprise, the bricks are then systematically processed as artifacts and showcased on multi-tiered repetitive grid-like shelves situated within expertly fabricated backlit display cabinets. Featured as unique specimens, the bricks forge a sense of familiarity and immediacy for the viewer cultivating an awareness of their rich history and complex network of migration, movement and interchangeability. The exhibition is further enhanced by compelling video, immersive soundscape and interactive brick rubbings.

Help Restore the Noble House

When: Tuesdays – Saturdays

Where: The Heritage Society

1100 Bagby Street

Houston, TX

 

In 2019, The Heritage Society (THS) celebrated 65 years of working to preserve Houston’s history, beginning with Houston’s oldest building. The non-profit organization was formed in 1954 to save and restore the Kellum-Noble House, which was facing demolition by the city. Originally built in 1847, the home has many stories to tell. Nathaniel Kellum was an industrious man who operated the brickyard and lime plant that produced the bricks and plaster to construct his house. Both the Kellums and Nobles had domestic slaves and some undoubtedly worked in the brickyard, thus contributing to the home’s construction and its story. Zerviah Noble not only lived in the home for decades, but also operated a small school there teaching young Houstonians to read and write, draw and paint, to embroider and appreciate music.  Highlights from the exhibit include original Kellum-Noble bricks, Zerviah’s silver pieces, and a “school room” complete with items from the Middle Bayou School which operated in the late 19th century near Clear Lake.

Over the years, THS has thoughtfully done preservation maintenance, continued historical research, and educated the public about Houston through the lens of the Kellums and the Nobles. Late in 2014, THS began its most ambitious restoration project to date with the goal of stabilizing the building’s foundation. Visitors will see an amazing video that walks you through the work we have done so far and details the future plans for the building.
