UH Commissions Trenton Doyle Hancock Installation

Ever since its designation as a Tier One University in 2011, the University of Houston (UH) has been growing and revamping all of its locations throughout the city. In conjunction with its expansion, UH has acquired many new artworks to supplement its already comprehensive collection. Over the past few years, the UH Main Campus has received a mural by UH professor Aaron Parazette and a sculpture by Luis Jiménez.

The university’s most recent acquisition is a 29 by 36-foot wall work by Houston-based artist Trenton Doyle Hancock. The work is permanently installed in the University of Houston-Downtown’s (UHD) new welcome center and is constructed using painted plexiglass panels.

UHD’s new welcome center will also house the Harry W. O’Kane Gallery, nearly tripling the gallery’s exhibition space.

On February 4th from 6-8pm, there will be an opening reception for Hancock’s installation and for Lucinda Cobley: matrix, the first show at the new O’Kane Gallery. For more details and to RSVP for the opening party, go here.

    It is a mistake to say that UH has commissioned this mural.

    Let’s do make sure to understand that University of Houston-Downtown is a separate university with a separate art collection from University of Houston. UH-D commission this mural, not UH. The distinction is quite significant.
