Houston Calling

Texas music looks like this 2004

November 13th, 2004 · No Comments

Tonight (Saturday, November 13th, 2004) at DiverseWorks downtown, The Houston Chapter of AIGA presents the 5th Annual Loud and Clear–Texas Music Looks Like This, an exhibition and auction of original artwork interpreting the music of Texas musicians. Nearly 400 patrons of the arts, graphic design, and music gather for a unique evening of Texas-style entertainment (that means big hair, big hats, boots, Mexican food, and booze). Originally developed to increase awareness of graphic design as a discipline and profession among a larger and more diversified audience, the event also raises funds for KPFT 90.1 FM, a local publicly-funded radio station you should already be aware of.

This year’s exhibition and auction will again feature original posters, designed by some of the best and brightest in Texas’ graphic design community, interpreting the music of artists whose work represents Texas music at its eclectic best. Proceeds from the event and auction will benefit AIGA Houston and KPFT 90.1 FM: The Sound of Texas, a Pacifica Network radio station.

The event runs from 6 to 10 p.m. Tickets are $25 for AIGA members, and $35 for non-members. A steep price, yes, but there will be complimentary food and drink. Last year, they ran out by the time I got there, but hopefully this year will be different. I have been assured it will be.

Hope to see you there.
