Eyes Of the Storm: HCC's Visual Art Response to Hurricane Harvey

Hosted by: COE - Visual and Performing Arts
When: Oct. 11, 2017 at 9:00 AM
Location: Central Art Gallery

Hurricane Harvey evoked in every Houstonian a reaction, intimate yet shared, to both the storm’s devastation and to the inspiring response from neighbors and strangers alike. In Eyes of the Storm, HCC Visual Arts invites its students, faculty, and staff to examine the impact of this catastrophic event on their own lives and their community. This group encompasses young and old, immigrants and native Texans, people of every color and from every neighborhood, professional artists and those who have never touched a paintbrush. Participants, using art materials supplied in the gallery, will create a piece reflecting their experience of Harvey and then attach it to the gallery walls in a pattern indicating their location in the city. The exhibit will include a video of interviews with the participants, an oral history of a history-making event, a storm that tore down houses and built community.

This adventure in experiential storytelling will open with a reception October 11, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM and will be in the HCC Central Gallery through November 1. The gallery is located in the Fine Arts Center at 3517 Austin.
