ART EVENT “Old, Weird Houston” at Orange Show Center for Visionary Art

March 30 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Free

MARCH 30, 2024 at 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM: The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art presents “Old, Weird Houston,” a local alternative history fair and symposium that preserves, interprets, and shares the hidden histories of unusual and creative people, institutions, and events that have made our city one of the most diverse and livable in the country.

Organized collaboratively with Archivists of the Houston Area (AHA!) and the University of Houston Center for Public History, “Old, Weird Houston” features a day-long schedule of speakers and panels, from a keynote address to presentations by students active in the fields of history and library science. Regional archives both private and public display offbeat, rarely seen materials from their collections in a fair-style setting along with food trucks and vendors specializing in Houston-proud books, crafts, and apparel.

Free admission! Also on view is a special edition of the “Lomax on Lomax Show” from keynote performer and pioneering musicologist John Lomax III.
