Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts awarded $200,000 grant

Center will promote understanding of Muslim culture through art
UH is one of only six U.S. institutions awarded Building Bridges Grants funded by Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art

The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts has launched a major initiative using interdisciplinary art practices as vehicles for expanding awareness of Muslim cultures and has been awarded a $200,000 grant to move the project forward.

The center is among only six institutions in the United States to receive a Building Bridges: Campus Community Engagement Grant awarded by the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) and funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.

“The Building Bridges grant will help us show how the arts can be transformational for a university campus,” said Karen Farber, executive director of the Mitchell Center. “We can't wait to get started with the remarkable artists that will be a part of the INTERSECTIONS initiative. We are so grateful to the Association of Performing Arts Presenters and Doris Duke foundations for their votes of confidence in the Mitchell Center and the University of Houston.”

The $200,000 grant will support the Mitchell Center’s INTERSECTIONS project, which is led by a steering committee of Houston area scholars and arts leaders. INTERSECTIONS will assemble four artists in residence on the UH campus who will use their respective talents to create awareness of Muslim culture through academic activities, exhibitions and performances.

In the Fall 2014 semester, INTERSECTIONS artists in residence will participate in the Mitchell Center’s Interdisciplinary Arts courses “Art as Activism I and II.” They also will premiere works during the center’s annual CounterCurrent festival that will be held on and off campus during the spring semesters of 2015 and 2016. Participating INTERSECTIONS artists will be announced in early 2014.

The INTERSECTIONS steering committee is comprised of CLASS faculty members, local artists and Houston arts professionals including:

  • Hosam Aboul-Ela, associate professor of English
  • Dina Alsowayel, associate director of Women’s Studies
  • Emran El-Badawi, director of Arab Studies
  • Nick Flynn, professor of Creative Writing
  • Jim Granato, director of the Hobby Center for Public Policy
  • Pat Jasper, director of folklife and traditional arts for the Houston Arts Alliance
  • Sehba Sarwar, writer and multidisciplinary artist
  • Claudia Schmuckli, director and chief curator of Blaffer Art Museum

In addition to the Mitchell Center, other Building Bridges grantees are Art2Action, Davis Performing Arts Center, the Cedar Cultural Center, LaGuardia Performing Arts Center and Wesleyan Center for the Arts.

Alley Theatre will perform its 2014-2015 Season at UH

All Alley performances will be in the 565-seat Wortham Theatre on campus

An exciting partnership between the University of Houston and the Tony Award-winning Alley Theatre brings the Alley’s entire 2014-2015 season to the University’s Wortham Theatre – a 565-seat venue whose proscenium opening and stage area closely resemble most Broadway theaters.

“This is an outstanding opportunity for our theater students to directly engage with the Alley's working professionals,” said President and Chancellor Renu Khator. “In addition to specific internships, simply sharing the hallways is a wonderful chance for our students to make connections and gain insight from the Alley's experienced and talented actors and staff. I know they'll experience the energy of our students as well.”

Dr. Khator said the partnership with the Alley fits well with the UH Arts Initiative, which features public programs that include premiere theater and musical productions, art and architectural exhibitions, literary readings and performances. Public events include long-standing annual summer events – the Houston Shakespeare Festival at Houston’s Miller Outdoor Theatre and the Texas Music Festival, which presents concerts throughout the Houston metropolitan area.

Jim Johnson, director of the School of Theatre & Dance at UH, said, “I'm excited to share our facilities with some Alley patrons who may not have visited the UH campus before. We've been going through some renovations to prepare the theater for the Alley, in addition to some improvements to parking and a major transformation of the park space in the midst of UH's Arts campus.”

Johnson said UH and the Alley have had a number of interactions over the years.

“UH alums have been a part of the Alley team for decades, and we’ve been lucky enough to have a number of Alley professionals work here with us,” he said. “Recently, Alley professionals have taught a number of our classes, they’ve performed in the Houston Shakespeare Festival, and they’ve mentored our students in a variety of internship positions.”

In selecting a venue for the 2014-2015 season, a comprehensive analysis of all possible options was undertaken by the Alley. The Wortham Theatre was chosen because of its modern amenities, similar size to the Alley’s Hubbard Stage, up-to-date stage technology and its proximity to the Alley Theatre’s downtown home. The theater has excellent audience amenities including ADA-compliant seating.

“This is an exciting time for the Alley, with their major renovations about to begin, and it’s led to significant improvements here at UH as well,” Johnson said. “We’re almost complete with the replacement of our rigging system in the Wortham Theatre, and it’s been an opportunity for us to complete some major upgrades in our Quintero Theatre as well.”

Johnson said Alley patrons will find a welcoming environment at UH.

“I think they’ll enjoy a very warm reception here, where you can feel the vibrant energy the students bring as they train under our outstanding faculty and, now, experience being in the midst of one of the great American theater companies.”

With financial support from its successful Extended Engagement Capital Campaign, the Alley will begin extensive renovations to its facilities on July 14, 2014. These will continue through the summer of 2015, with the grand opening of the renovated Alley Theatre scheduled for fall 2015.

“The Extended Engagement Campaign will fund the renovation of the Alley’s building, creating one of the best theater facilities in the country right here in Houston,” said Meredith Long, co-chair of the campaign. “This campaign will also ensure a legacy of artistic excellence for future generations.”

The Wortham Theatre is located just off Cullen Boulevard inside the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts building (also called building 507 on a UH campus map), which also houses the UH School of Theatre & Dance.

Free designated parking for Alley patrons will be actively monitored and patrolled by campus security for all performances and is located at campus entrance 16 off Cullen Boulevard, just across the street from the theatre building.

Welcome Wilson Houston History Collaborative Established

Center for Public History renames Houston History Project for alumnus donor

Welcome Wilson Reception
Standing from left, Mr. Chris Cookson, a former student of Martin Melosi, who approached Welcome Wilson on behalf of the Center for Public History, and Dean John W. Roberts. Seated from left, distinguished alumnus Mr. Welcome Wilson Sr. and Dr. Joe Pratt, director of the Welcome Wilson Houston History Collaborative, editor-in-chief of the Houston History magazine, and Cullen Professor of Business and History.

Welcome Wilson, Sr. has established the Welcome W. Wilson Endowment to allow the Center for Public History to grow its efforts to research, write, and preserve local history.

“Tracking the history of Houston has been a passion of mine since I came here for college 68 years ago,” said Mr. Wilson, a 1949 graduate. “I am very honored that this important endeavor will bear my name.”

The Welcome Wilson Houston History Collaborative will replace a previous Center for Public History initiative, called the Houston History Project, under the direction of Dr. Joseph Pratt, NEH-Cullen Professor of History and Business.

“We can think of no better name to have associated with our program than Welcome Wilson,” said Martin Melosi, director of the Center for Public History. He called Mr. Wilson’s gift “the most important financial gift that the center has yet received by an individual synonymous with the history and heritage of the University of Houston and our community at large.”

The Welcome Wilson Houston History Collaborative will continue the publication of Houston History magazine, management of the UH Oral History of Houston project and the UH History Archives, and production of UH Memories documentary films.

“We will be able to expand the digital content that we provide on the website, which enhances both the print magazine and the summer digital issue,” said Debbie Harwell, Managing Editor of Houston History. “The gift will also support the work of undergraduate students in researching and writing history for the magazine and website through the Regional History class.”

Additionally, the Welcome Wilson Houston History Collaborative plans to create an in-depth, documentary film on the history of UH and the city of Houston in a broader, more comprehensive context than ever previously attempted.

Mr. Wilson served as Chairman of the Board of Regents of the University of Houston System from 2007 - 2010. He is the Chairman of the Board of GSL Welcome Group, LLC, a principal in Kingham Dalton Wilson, Ltd., and a longtime real estate developer in Southeast Texas.

Among his numerous awards, Mr. Wilson was recently inducted into the Texas Business Hall of Fame, and received the Houston Business Journal’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Along with his impressive business credentials, he served in several capacities in the Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon B. Johnson administrations.  He was a naval officer in Japan during the Korean War. He has been married for 64 years, to his wife Joanne, and has five children, 16 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren.

Health and Human Performance students take the Food Stamp Challenge

Eating on $25 for a week, learning lessons for a lifetime

No fresh produce. No coffee. No bottled water.

For a night out with friends, they will have a seat at the table, but no plate.

Students in an honors class in nutrition policy at the University of Houston are preparing to take the Food Stamp Challenge, an exercise usually undertaken by religious groups and community activists to draw attention to the pressures faced by the poorest Americans in feeding their families.

“We say, ‘I’m starving,’ or ‘I’m so hungry,’ ” said Kristen Haney, a sophomore biochemistry major. Really, she said, many of the students don’t know what that means.

But she and the other nine students in the class – the rest are juniors and seniors, a mix of nutrition, kinesiology and biology majors – suspect they might feel differently the week of Feb. 16-22, when they begin the challenge.

Politicians and activists have taken the challenge, but Daphne Hernandez, an assistant professor in the Department of Health and Human Performance, suggests that it will be far more than a publicity stunt for the students in her class. Hernandez will participate, too.

The University is providing $25 gift cards to a local grocery store; $25 is about the average weekly amount available for a single adult eligible for benefits under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which served 47 million low-income people in 2013.

Most of the students will go on to careers in health or public policy, and the experience can shape their decisions, Hernandez said.

“Think about what you would recommend to Congress,” she told them. “If you’re working in a community center, think about what you would recommend to clients. This is different from a simulation. This is real.”

The exercise won’t end when Hernandez and the students resume their regular diets on Feb. 23. Students will record everything they eat for the week, determining the number of calories, fat, vitamins and minerals, generating a class nutrition data set for analysis. Students will be able to present their findings at the University’s Undergraduate Research Day.

Generally, people must have household incomes at or below 130 percent of the poverty line, or about $25,400 per year for a family of three, to qualify for SNAP benefits. Funding for the program dropped in November as federal stimulus spending ended, cutting the average family’s benefits by about $36 per month.

The Farm Bill just approved by Congress includes an $8.6 billion cut to SNAP benefits over 10 years. According to estimates from the Congressional Budget Office, 850,000 SNAP households will see benefits lowered, although Texas isn’t expected to be affected.

Some students in the class feel a personal connection to the academic exercise.

Denny Dao, a senior nutrition major, said his mother was on food stamps when she first arrived in the United States, and he has heard her stories about crying over the difficulty of trying to feed her family with too little food.

But even without any personal experience, the students said they expect to end the week wiser, if a bit skinnier.

Many will eventually work in the health field, said Enny Audu, a senior nutrition major.

“This will help us relate to our patients,” she said.

CLASS undergraduate president of Black Student Union

Junior Lashone Garrett leading effort to revive BSU on campus

Ms. Garrett

Lashone Garrett wanted three things in the college she attended – proximity to her family in Dallas, an exercise science program, and a culturally diverse campus.

The junior majoring in kinesiology found all of that and more when she enrolled at the University of Houston.

She is part of a core group of students bringing back the Black Student Union to the UH campus. She is the president of the revived organization.

“I liked the idea of being a part of an organization that is dedicated to the promotion of unity on campus,” said Garrett.

The UH’s first Black Student Union was stared in 1971, but the organization has rarely had a consistent, long-term presence on campus, said Dr. Elwyn Lee, Vice President for Community Relations and Institutional Access at University of Houston.

“In the 1960s and ‘70s, we had foundational issues that the BSU addressed,” said Dr. Lee. “Students wanted to establish an African American Studies department, for example, and they wanted to see more African American faculty members. There was a sense of camaraderie around those issues that resulted in the BSU being established.”

The BSU and other student leaders were successful in getting the UH administration to meet those goals. The BSU’s influence faded as students addressed more personal concerns and became more integrated into the social life of the campus, Dr. Lee said.

Garrett says she and the other leaders of the revived version of the organization are committed to ensuring the organization continues for future UH students.

“The focus of BSU is to teach and promote professionalism, along with activities that provide a cultural and educational benefit to students,” said Garrett. “BSU celebrates UH’s diverse population and embraces efforts to collaborate with other organizations promoting ethnic identity.”

The organization does this by hosting “meet and greet” style events so that people can come and connect with the organization and its members, rather than only attending lecture-style meetings. On February 20 the organization is hosting their second general meeting which will be followed by a social mixer. Interested persons can email uhbsu@yahoo.com for more information.
