Kathrine G. McGovern Opening Night Collage

Thursday, September 14, 2017

6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Come out and celebrate the grand opening of Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts! 


From food trucks to The Spirit of Houston marching band, live battle scenes to printmaking, there will be something for everyone. Ongoing performances in the Moores Opera House and Wortham Theatre will offer a glimpse of the upcoming seasons. We’re delighted to unveil the first new piece in the public art collection in over eight years, soon to be housed in the lobby of our Wortham Theatre.


Opening Night is a collage in action featuring faculty and students from the School of Art, School of Theatre & Dance, and the Moores School of Music. It also showcases our community-focused institutions: Blaffer Art Museum, the Center for Arts and Social Engagement (CASE) and the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center. 


General admission is FREE for UH students, faculty and staff with a valid ID, and $10 for the public. Want to enjoy more than just the programming? VIP tickets are available for the cocktail reception and celebratory dinner. Get your tickets today!
