One year after Hurricane Harvey…
are you feeling HOPEFUL or FEARLESS, maybe INSPIRED or BRAVE?
The Houston Library Foundation invites the public to reflect upon how they feel one year after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Participants will choose one emotion from 12 printed cards to publicly display on the Barbara Bush Literacy Plaza.
“This creative project is an opportunity for members of the community to reflect on how they are feeling. The exhibition will display an array of colorful cards that represents the vibrancy and resiliency of our community.” Sally Swanson, HPL Foundation’s Executive Director added, “I encourage everyone who is downtown to visit the Barbara Bush Literacy Plaza to add their icon to the display.”
The interactive exhibit will open on Friday, August 24th and remain through Friday, August 31st. Cards will be available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily to add to the exhibition. The Barbara Bush Literacy Plaza is located between the Central Library and the Julia Ideson building at 500 McKinney St. Houston, TX 77002 (across from Houston City Hall.)
Through advocacy and fundraising, the Houston Public Library Foundation supports the Houston Public Library’s wide range of community programs. Library programs exist through the generosity of individuals, foundations, organizations, and businesses who share our collective belief in lifelong learning.
