ENCOUNTER: Meeting Points on Buffalo Bayou

Encounter: Meeting Points on Buffalo Bayou is a large-scale site based collaborative project consisting of the senior Graphic Design students and Buffalo Bayou Partnership with funding from The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts. Teams of students spent two semesters conducting research and developing proposals for a series of interactive, text-based installations along six locations along the bayou in the East End and Fifth Ward that reflect Houston’s history, economy, resiliency and culture.

The final event encouraged community input as BBP plans for the bayou’s future.
