The Moody Center for the Arts at Houston’s Rice University announced its upcoming schedule of artists and it’s pretty impressive. The Center, which is dedicated to cross-disciplinary collaboration between the arts, sciences and humanities, will open February 24, just in time for the spring semester.

Highlights of the program include the first U.S. realization of Olafur Eliasson’s Green light project, an exhibition of Thomas Struth’s Photographs of Scientific Research, a nine-monitor video wall by Diana Thater, a site-specific dance performance by Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre at the James Turrell Twilight Epiphany Skyspace, and on-campus events with Moody Artist-in-Residence Mona Hatoum.

Many of the projects involving working closely with students, the public, and community organizations, and many of the artists will participate in panel discussions and lectures at the Center. For detailed information on each of the planned projects and exhibitions, go here.
