Public Art of the University of Houston System (Public Art UHS) engages academic and global communities across and beyond the University of Houston System through robust programming and a significant collection of publicly accessible works by regional, national and international artists. Featuring works by Pablo Serrano, Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Luis Jiménez, John Biggers and many others.

Public Art’s programs and collection span the four component universities of the UH System—University of Houston, University of Houston-Downtown, University of Houston-Clear Lake, and University of Houston-Victoria—as well as additional instructional sites in Sugar Land (UH), Pearland (UHCL) and Katy (UH/UHV), helping to make art accessible to millions of Texans. 

More than fifty years after its establishment, its programs and collection has matured into one of the most impressive public art collections in the United States, with nearly 700 objects on view. The scope of these projects has increased dramatically over time, and Public Art UHS continues to expand its collection through commissions, site-specific installations, temporary public art projects, purchases and gifts.
