Planning your visit
Be part of the creativity and innovation that happens at the University of Houston by visiting the UH Arts district. Throughout the year, enjoy events and exhibits at Blaffer Art Museum, Moores School of Music, UH School of Theatre and Dance, and The Mitchell Center for Performing Arts. Conveniently located steps apart from one another, these on-campus programs and centers offer an unparalleled fine and contemporary arts experience. Their close proximity affords UH Arts visitors have the freedom to absorb a variety of artistic offering in one single day or evening.
Currently, exciting changes are taking place in the arts district, including:
New landscaping construction in the UH Arts district will soon give way to a welcoming green space, the fine arts Grove. This outdoor oasis, similar to an Italian piazza, will unite all of the UH Arts venues as well as the Valenti School of Communication. Visitors will enjoy a newly renovated area that is enhanced by increased outdoor gathering space, improved lighting and way-finding signage designed to welcome and direct them throughout the arts district.
The majority of construction for this exciting new space will take place through June 22, 2014, but the show must go on: parking in the arts district will remain free (use campus entrance 14), and free, 10 minute ticket-window parking will remain as well. UH Arts programs and their venues will continue with pedestrian access while the Grove comes to life.

The Alley Theatre at UH
From July, 2014 through summer 2015, Houston's Alley Theatre will begin extensive renovations of its facilities, with the grand opening of the renovated Alley Theatre scheduled for fall 2015. During that time, UH has the honor of serving as a temporary home for the theater. All Alley performances during the upcoming season will be staged on UH's 565-seat venue, the Wortham Theatre. Alley Theatre patrons will enjoy free parking, performances by the UH School of Theatre and Dance in the Quintero Theater, and many other attractions in the arts district.
The Wortham Theater and UH Arts district are conveniently located less than one mile from The Alley Theatre and downtown Houston. Please click here for a map and directions to the UH Wortham Theater.
