Award-winning renovation of Blaffer Art Musem

AIA Houston recognizes renovation of 38-year-old museum with design award

For more 38 years, the Blaffer Art Museum has been the public face of contemporary visual art at the University of Houston.

But after nearly four decades, it was time for a facelift.

The Blaffer brought in one of the best renovation architecture firms in the nation to design its new look – WORK Architecture Co. in New York City.

After shutting its doors for several months to complete the $2.25 million renovation, the museum reopened in September 2012 to high praise for its innovative redesign. This summer, the Houston chapter of the American Institute of Architects recognized the Blaffer Art Museum and WORK Architecture with a 2013 Design Award for restoration/renovation.

“Jurors particularly liked how one material was used to clarify the program. This addition adds a ton of bang for the buck, and adds whimsy to a very sober building,” the AIA posted on its website about the award-winning Blaffer project.

“The renovation began a new and exciting chapter for Blaffer. It marks the most significant facility improvement in the museum’s 38-year history, providing both a much-needed physical upgrade and an identity –defining statement,” said Blaffer Art Museum Director and Chief Curator Claudia Schmuckli.

The redesign of the museum space included opening up the previously blank north side of the building, which faces Elgin St., by constructing a new entrance pavilion. On the opposite side of the building, which faces the UH campus, a second entrance was created. This entrance houses a small café space, providing a common area that connects the front pavilion with the back courtyard, allowing the public to freely move between the city and campus via the museum.

The renovated interior includes a new, grand staircase that provides street-level views of the museum’s interior activities, while also allowing for the expansion and diversification of the museum’s gallery spaces.

The AIA Houston Design Awards program recognizes design excellence in architecture, residential architecture, interior architecture, restoration/renovation, and urban design. Criteria utilized to determine award recipients include quality of design, resolution of the program idea, sustainable responsibility, innovation, thoughtfulness, and technique.

“I think it’s fair to say that the renovation will not only redefine Blaffer’s presence on campus, but also its role in the city of Houston,” said Schmuckli.

Photos of the award winning architecture can be seen at http://work.ac/blaffer-art-museum/

Update, Oct. 10, 2013:

The Houston Press recognized the Blaffer Art Museu with two of its 2013 “Best of Houston” awards  - best artistic renovation and best college campus building.

Houston’s only live stream of Creative Time Summit on UH campus Oct 25 - 26

Center for Arts Leadership and Project Row Houses host screening, local version of international creative placemaking conference

Creative Time Summit - Logo

Houston’s redevelopment efforts have increasingly incorporated artists and arts organizations.

Buzzwords like “creative placemaking” and “creative economies” circulate constantly in international philanthropic circles and policy chambers in recognition of the arts as a catalyst for economic development and a magnet for capital.

Locally, Discovery Green Park, Metro rail and bus stations, and newly designated arts districts are some of the most recent creative placemaking projects in Houston. Those efforts reflect an international trend to converge urban planning and arts and culture to revitalize city corridors, neighborhoods and public spaces.

To examine and expand Houston’s creative placemaking activity, the Center for Arts Leadership has partnered with the nonprofit Project Row Houses to present a live stream of the 2013 Creative Time Summit, “Art, Place and Dislocation in the 21st Century,” on Oct. 25 and 26.

“We hope to convene community members and students, artists and architects - to use this national broadcast to highlight some of the great things we do locally, as well as spark conversations on what else we could be doing,” said Sixto Wagan, director of the Center for Arts Leadership.

Creative Time is a New York-based nonprofit that commissions and presents public arts projects. Since 2009, it has convened an annual summit of global public thinkers, artists, curators, and policy makers in New York City to explore the intersection of art making and social activism. This year’s conference tackles the ideas of creative placemaking.

“Art is an integral part of the viability of contemporary cities, and its implications are as complex as the cities themselves,” said Nato Thompson, Creative Time’s chief curator.

The University of Houston will be one of about 50 international sites to live stream the 2013 summit.

The on-campus presentation in the KIVA Room 101 of Farish Hall will be an opportunity for local creative placemaking practitioners provide opportunity to discuss and engage with peers and community members.

Local attendees will also have the opportunity to publish their reactions to themes from the Creative Time Summit on the Center’s website.

“Big thinking should lead to deep conversations,” Wagan said. “This is a good start to address a larger question of how artists and organizers can seize opportunities while still being responsible community members.”

Not far from campus, Project Row Houses has been using art to focus community redevelopment efforts for twenty years.

Project Row Houses Founder Rick Lowe will be a speaker at the 2013 summit, along with artists Vito Acconci and Mel Chin, architect Alfredo Brillembourg, and Detroit’s Heidelberg Project director Jenenne Whitfield.

The keynote addresses will be delivered by art critic and curator Lucy Lippard, writer and TomDispatch contributor Rebecca Solnit, and Harvard professor of Urban Theory Neil Brenner.

The Houston Screening of the live stream will take place in Kiva Room 101 of Farish Hall on Friday, October 25 from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Saturday, October 26 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Harvard scholar to deliver McGovern Lecture in Family, Health and Human Values

Government professor Daniel Carpenter will give address on health care regulation on Oct. 24

Dr. Daniel Carpenter

The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences has invited Dr. Daniel Carpenter, a noted professor in government, to give the John P. McGovern Endowed Lecture in Family, Health and Human Values at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, October 24 at the Rockwell Pavilion in the M.D. Anderson Library.

Dr. Carpenter is the Allie S. Freed Professor of Government and Director of the Center for American Political Studies at Harvard University, as well as the Director of the Social Sciences Program at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.

His research focuses on public bureaucracies and government regulation, particularly regulation of health and financial products. His October 24th talk is entitled, “How Regulation Makes Markets in American Health Care.”

“With health care reform and the implications of the Affordable Care Act at the center of the news right now, Dr. Carpenter’s work on health policy and regulation is especially timely,” said Catherine Patterson, CLASS associate dean of graduate studies and professor of history. “We are excited to invite him to our campus for the McGovern Lecture.”

In 2010, Dr. Carpenter published Reputation and Power: Organizational Image and Pharmaceutical Regulation at the FDA, an 800-page examination of the federal Food and Drug Administration and pharmaceutical regulation in the United States.

His research technique mixes theoretical, historical, statistical and mathematical analyses to deconstruct the development of political institutions, particularly in the United States.

For the FDA book, Carpenter looked beyond the FDA’s archives and complied records from Houston’s M.D. Anderson, the Mayo Clinic and other research hospitals, as well as drug companies, medical associations and other researchers to develop a full picture of the FDA’s global influence and impact.

His latest book, Preventing Regulatory Capture: Special Interest Influence and How to Limit It, is an edited volume that bringing together the work of 17 scholars from across the social sciences. It will be published in November by Cambridge University Press.

In addition to his ongoing teaching and research, Dr. Carpenter recently launched a long-term project on petitioning in North American political development, examining comparisons and connections to petitioning histories in Europe and India. He hopes to draw upon the millions of petitions in local, state, and federal archives to create an educational, genealogical, and scholarly resource for citizens, students, and scholars.

Dr. Carpenter graduated from Georgetown University in 1989 with distinction in Honors Government and received his doctorate in political science from the University of Chicago in 1996. Before joing the Harvard faculty in 2002, he taught at Princeton University and the University of Michigan.

The John P. McGovern Endowment was established in 1999 and supports the John P. McGovern Annual Award Lectureship in Family, Health, and Human Values in CLASS at UH. This series focuses on speakers with notable expertise in the area of family, health and human values. Each speaker is presented with the John P. McGovern Award Medal.

Visiting professors and scholars enrich the CLASS faculty

Academics join CLASS departments and academic programs for a year or two

Eric Castillo

Dr. Jose Angel Hernandez

The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences has a long and rich tradition of bringing noteworthy academics to campus to teach and study for one- or two-year terms as Visiting Professors and Visiting Scholars.

In this way, the College enriches the diversity of thought within its faculty, recruits for senior and junior faculty positions and provides opportunities for students to engage with different teaching styles and cutting-edge research.

A key supporter of this CLASS tradition is the Center for Mexican American Studies.

Since 1986, the CMAS Visiting Scholars Program has recruited experts, who may be interested in tenured or tenure-track positions, to generate research about the Latino community in such areas as history, art, sociology, psychology, anthropology, political science and English.

The program allows the scholar to pursue his/her research and publication writings, and to develop a spring semester class. Often, the CMAS Visiting Scholars have joint appointments in CLASS departments.

This year, two professors join the list of experts deepening the pool of research on the Latino experience, a hallmark of the University of Houston’s academic excellence. They are Dr. Eric Castillo, Adjunct Visiting Assistant Professor, and Dr. Jose Angel Hernandez, Adjunct Visiting Associate Professor in the Department of History.

Dr. Castillo earned both an MA and PhD in American Studies from the University of New Mexico. His research begins at the place where art, social justice, culture and identity collide—“artivism” (art + activism.)

“I’m interested in how we can use visual images to recreate iconography for community mobilization, for youth empowerment and for advocacy,” he said. “In particular, I’m looking at the undocu-queer movement (self-identified LGBT and undocumented) and the possibility of making more strides for social justice and liberation. The undocu-queer movement and artivism do that successfully.”

Castillo, also a scholar of the late artist Luis Jimenez, will spend the fall semester in research and the spring semester teaching.

Dr. Hernandez earned his B.A. and M.A. in history here at the University of Houston and his Ph.D. in history at the University of Chicago. While a student at UH, Dr. Hernandez was mentored by History professor John Hart, one of the nation’s foremost scholars on Mexico. Dr. Hernandez’ own research is on repatriated Mexicans in the early 19th century.

“There aren’t any books looking at this period,” he said. “My research is a reinterpretation of Mexican and Mexican American history and Mexico’s struggle to secure its northern border with repatriates after the U.S.-Mexican war.”

Hernandez’s research is a continuation of his work that resulted in the publication of his book “Mexican American Colonization during the Nineteenth Century: A History of the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands.” He plans to teach a course in the spring about global migration to Latin America.

“These are two outstanding scholars who are producing important research about Latinos,” said Tatcho Mindiola, professor and director of CMAS. “Jose Angel’s research is a new and interesting approach to our view of being Latino. Eric is a promising young scholar who will bring us an important view of the role of art in our culture and behavior. We are fortunate to have them both.”

In addition to the CMAS Visiting Scholars Program, several other CLASS departments and schools have welcomed Visiting Scholars to their faculty ranks this academic year.

The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences welcomes its new non-tenure track faculty members. The instructional and clinical faculty members draw on their professional experiences outside of academia to enliven their teaching.

Among this new group of faculty hires are members of three divisions of the U.S. Armed Forces who are working and teaching in the three Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) programs housed within CLASS – Air Force, Navy, and Army, which is known as the Military Science program in the College. Those new faculty members are:

  • Captain Kevin Braswell, Army ROTC assistant professor of military science
  • Captain Andrew Nelson, Naval science marine officer instructor
  • Lt. Col. Lynn Bentley, professor of Air Force science and commander of the UH Air Force ROTC Detachment

As commander, Lt. Col. Bentley is responsible for recruiting and preparing officer candidates for Air Force commissioning.

“I teach sophomores and seniors,” he said. “I teach the sophomores a course which covers topics such as leadership and the history of the Air Force. I teach the seniors a course about policy, military doctrine, and global cultures.”

When students complete the Air Force ROTC program and receive their degree, they are commissioned as second lieutenants. Non-flying officers serve a four-year commitment on active duty, navigators serve six years after training, and pilots 10 years after training.

“I have a unique opportunity to help young people set their path in life,” Lt. Col. Bentley said. “This is a fabulous career with opportunities to further your education, travel, and move around the country and the world.”

Lt. Col. Bentley is an example of someone who made the most of the educational opportunities the military provides. He completed the Air Force ROTC program at Southern Illinois University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management.  He also earned a Master of Business Administration from Regis University and a second master’s degree in Military Operational Art and Science from Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama.

“The military is very good about creating opportunities to get an education,” Bentley said.

In addition to the new ROTC faculty members, several other CLASS departments and schools have welcomed new clinical and instructional professors to their faculty ranks this academic year.

Legendary Cullen Rifles competition rifle team returns to campus

Alumna Lillie Robertson makes gift to reestablish Army ROTC target shooting club

The Cullen Rifles, a competition shooting and drill team, was founded at the University of Houston in the 1940s and disbanded in the 1980s.

On September 27, the Cullen Rifles unit was resurrected by the University of Houston Battalion of the Army Reserved Officers Training Corps thanks to a generous donation by alumna Lillie Robertson.

“The Cullen Rifles combines not only the traditions and character of ROTC, but it steps things up to another level of excellence,” said Robertson, a granddaughter of UH founder Ezekiel Cullen.

She said her gift honored her grandfather’s commitment and involvement in the Cullen Rifles and her father’s service in the Air Force during World War II as a B-17 pilot.

The legacy of the Cullen Rifles is rich and entwined with the history of the University of Houston. The unit served as the color guard for President Eisenhower when he visited campus during his presidency. The squad was ranked No. 1 in the nation in 1967 and 1971. Among its former members are two All-Americans – Jesse Reynolds in 1966 and Senold Legge in 1972 and 1973.

“We’re pleased to have the Cullen Rifles return to campus and we know they will once again restore the glory that they once represented for the University of Houston,” said Dean John W. Roberts.

He and Ms. Robertson spoke on September 27 at the official ceremony welcoming back the Cullen Rifles to campus. At that event, UH Army ROTC Battalion Commander Lieutenant Colonel Michael Smith said the reestablishment of the Cullen Rifles kicks off a new expansion phase for the UH Battalion.

“The University of Houston has been designated as one of the seven “growth schools” in the nation and that means our mandate is to grow,” he said.

The Battalion is headquartered at UH but it is responsible for several Houston- area colleges. Last year, there were 80 Army ROTC cadets throughout the Houston area. This year the Battalion has about 120 cadets. It’s goal is to increase that number to between 220 and 250 cadet by 2015.

“How we’re going to do that is by retaining quality high school students in Houston and we want them to come here to the University of Houston and the Cullen Rifles will help them to do that,” he said.

Students seek out Reserved Officers Training Corps (ROTC) programs on college campuses for many reasons. Chief among them are a desire to serve the nation, a chance to graduate from college debt free with a job, an interest in developing new leadership skills, and a commitment to train for and master physical endurance challenges.

The Army ROTC has everything students need to achieve those goals. But last year, the LTC Smith decided the Corps was missing a key recruiting and retention tool – a competition rifle team.

Rifle marksmanship is a foundational military skill. Every soldier is tested on his or her ability to hit a target. But marksmanship is also a sport with national championships hosted by the National Collegiate Athletic Association and worldwide championships hosted by the International Olympic Committee. Like crew and archery, it’s one of a few Olympic-sanctioned sports that young adults can begin pursuing in college.

In Texas, Texas Christian University and Texas A&M University have NCAA competition rifle teams that attract some of the best sharp shooters in the nation. And in NCAA tournaments, women and men compete against each other. The reigning national champion is a woman at West Virginia University, a program that has won 15 national championships. The 2014 tournament will be held March 14 -15.

LTC Smith invited rifle Olympic gold medalist Staff Sgt. Glenn Eller to speak at the Cullen Rifles ceremony. A native of Katy, SSG Eller competed in the last four Olympics as a member of the U.S. national team. He said that he had his most success in his third appearance in the global competition after he joined the Army and began training with its competition rifle team.
