Just for your eyes. A new exhibition opened to a crowd tonight at Moody gallery at Rice.

"Urban Impressions" It features multi disciplinary works by an international group of artists.

It also features some local Houston artists works. For anyone interested in urban planning, art and multimedia you don't want to miss it. Check out Mary Flanagans AI works and the collaboration with Rice students. Ric Lowes major painting in the main gallery is amazing and the photo montaged city murals by the Japanese artist Sohei Nishino are pretty amazing. A couple of very nice Julie Mehretu works on paper. The whole show is an interesting statement on urban dynamics. They had a nice chili spiced beer provided by Astral brewing made in conjunction with one of the artist work. I recommend the show.

Thanks! Sounds awesome. I would also recommend the Escher exhibit at MFAH for those interested in dense, perambulable spaces. The earlier (pre-illusions phase) sketches in particular are awesome.

"What does it mean to live in a city today? That is the question Frauke V. Josenhans, curator for the Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University, challenged 15 artists to answer with “Urban Impressions: Experiencing the Global Contemporary Metropolis,” an exhibition on view through mid-December."

"The Kinder Foundation on Friday announced a $50 million grant to the Kinder Institute for Urban Research, more than tripling its endowment and ensuring longevity for the Rice University-based consortium."
