New Temporary Public Art Exhibition On View at the University of Houston

Color Field provides opportunities to question our perceptions while thinking about the impact color has on our lives. Featuring large-scale sculptures by seven contemporary artists, the exhibition winds through the University's park-like campus.


13 Installations, 7 Artists

Sarah Braman, Jeffie Brewer, Odili Donald Odita, Sam Falls, Spencer Finch, and TYPOE extend the Modernist notion of Color Field beyond the flat pictorial field of the canvas, expanding it into the real space that a viewer occupies. An auditory sensory soundscape by Amos Cochran complements the artworks. Learn More
