UH Arts district is an exciting and accessible cultural destination. On a given evening, you can be delighted by a world-class exhibit at the Blaffer Art Museum, stop next door for a live performance at the School of Theatre and Dance or the Moores School of Music, or discover how design enhances our lives at a College of Architecture lecture.  These choices are within walking distance of each other, parking is convenient and free and UH is less than five minutes from downtown Houston.
