Color Field

When: Now through May 31st, 2021

Where: University of Houston

4800 Calhoun Road

Houston, TX

Color Field provides opportunities to question our perceptions while thinking about the impact color has on our lives. Featuring large-scale sculptures by six contemporary artists, this free exhibition is displayed throughout the University of Houston’s park-like campus. Sarah Braman (b. 1970), Jeffie Brewer (b. 1971), Odili Donald Odita (b. 1966), Sam Falls (b. 1984), Spencer Finch (b. 1962), and TYPOE (b. 1983) draw inspiration from Color Field painting, which is a form of abstraction that emerged in the 1950s and 1960s relying heavily on color and flat surfaces devoid of representation.. Artists associated with this art movement, such as Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Louis and Sam Gilliam, poured, sprayed or applied paint with rags and sponges to create clouds of color that seemingly float on the surface of the canvas. As early as 1968, Gilliam also created sculptural works by taking his paintings off their stretchers and draping them freely from the wall. The artists presented in this exhibition further extend the Modernist notion of Color Field beyond the flat pictorial field of the canvas, expanding it into the real space that a viewer occupies.

Help Restore the Noble House

When: Tuesdays – Saturdays

Where: The Heritage Society

1100 Bagby Street

Houston, TX

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.
