Operating on the cutting edge of contemporary culture, Blaffer Gallery, the Art Museum of the University of Houston, is Houston's premier venue for open and ongoing engagement with the ever changing nature of the art of today, the recent past, and the near future. As a contemporary art museum, Blaffer Gallery embraces experimentation and creative acts of daring originality and vision, and promotes a spirit of investigation and discovery in the field of visual art and culture.
Blaffer's ambitious program includes six to eight exhibitions and publications a year, many premiering at the museum before traveling the world. Combining strong local ties with a global outlook, Blaffer exhibitions feature regional, national, and international contemporary art, presenting artists of diverse backgrounds, ages, and ethnicities with a special focus on work by emerging or under-recognized artists.
