During the Menil Community Arts Festival, there will be events that you can visit all day long. The first place you should start is the Menil Bookstore Deck where festival volunteers will have an information booth to answer all your questions.
Houston Center for Photography Collaborations X Print Sale
Location: 1441 W. Alabama
In addition to an upcoming exhibition in the Learning Center Gallery, Houston Center for Photography will host a print sale as part of their Collaborations X outreach program. Students from sixteen Houston-area high schools are invited to learn about the artistic, curatorial and commercial aspects of the art world. These emerging artists will not only be selling their prints, they will also curate the exhibition on view in May. The print sale is an opportunity to acquire work from emerging photographers at an affordable price point. +More Information
