Tour Houston’s ecosystem with artist and biologist Brandon Ballengée—Artist, biologist and environmental activist Brandon Ballengée invites the public to join him on a catch-and-release fishing adventure as he explores the ecology of Houston’s Buffalo Bayou through photographs and other media.

This event is held in conjunction with the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts 2020-2021 Artists-in-Residence Spotlight (April 17—25). Blaffer Art Museum is pleased to present a reflection, and extension, of the generative work conducted by a trio of artists invited to the University of Houston by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts. Since its inception in 2005, the CWMCA has welcomed pioneering interdisciplinary artists on a yearly basis to conceive projects that connect signature elements of their research and practice with students, faculty, and community organizations. In the 2020-2021 season, via a combination of virtual conferencing, in-person visits, collaboration, adaptation, and improvisation, artists Brandon Ballengee, Marisa Morán Jahn, and Shaun Leonardo have produced projects that we hope will have a lasting impact on the campus, community, and city.
