Tours & Programs
Hirsch Library hosts the first-ever ArTrivia night. No need to be an art historian, although a general knowledge of art history may give you a leg up. Many questions relate to current exhibitions, so arrive early to see what’s on view. Work in teams, or brave the quiz solo.
Meet the Books: Hirsch Library Exhibition Tours
With thousands of books on art to choose from, the Hirsch Library also offers engaging exhibitions featuring materials from the Rare Books Collection! These exhibitions, often organized by library staff, highlight recent acquisitions, exquisitely illustrated books, and rare printed matter.
Past Hirsch Library Events
“Art+Feminism” Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon
The Art+Feminism campaign started in response to a 2011 survey that revealed fewer than 10% of contributors on Wikipedia were women. The initiative seeks to change that statistic by ensuring that women are voices in the preservation of history.
Adding a Beat: Hirsch Library Project
This individual site-specific performance, conceived by Core Program critic Hanna Yoo, invites eight Houston-based artists to intervene in the Museum's Hirsch Library in conjunction with the the 2014 Core Exhibition.
