The Emergency Room is the latest venture by the Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts. This new exhibition space is aimed at better serving the Houston arts community and the arts on the Rice University campus. Visiting emerging artists will develop new exhibitions, give public lectures, and interact with Rice studio arts students.
Emerging artists are an under-served population within the Houston region, and the Emergency Room is an attempt to correct this by presenting the highest quality exhibitions within the context of a serious academic program.
Situated in a 9’ x 13’ former office, the Emergency Room is a gallery exhibiting contemporary art within the context of the Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts at Rice University. The Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts is in the midst of a renaissance – visual culture at Rice has never been more dynamic that it is right now.
Sewall Hall 402
Gallery hours are currently by appointment only.
