Houston Institute for Culture
Happy Anniversary!
Help Us Celebrate the Next Ten Years of Houston Institute for Culture

Houston Institute for Culture turned ten years old on August 20, 2012. It incorporated in Texas as a non-profit organization on August 20, 2002. Houston Institute for Culture produces city-wide events at Miller Outdoor Theatre, Discovery Green, Hobby Center and other public arts venues, as well as traditional arts and media arts events in many local art venues and universities throughout the city, reaching more than 20,000 people. It provides youth programs in schools and summer camps benefiting more than 200 students per year.

As we look ten years into the future, most everyone will know the organization as the Houston Museum of Culture. This provident and visionary institution will significantly improve quality of life in Houston, define the city for the nation and the world, and secure its future as a leading international city.

Imagine Houston with a truly great museum - one that is modern with cutting-edge technology and captivating subject matter; one that studies and interprets the most important and interesting subjects in our lives - our diverse ways of life - including our foods, arts, identities, languages, religions, occupations and pastimes; one that examines the impact of media, technology, energy and transportation on our ways of life; and, one that draws from the best examples around the world, including the Smithsonian, Ellis Island, Museum of Asian Civilizations, Museum of New Mexico, and others.



The Houston Museum of Culture will interest all Houstonians, who see themselves as diverse cultures living in one great city - Houston, where they want the best possible futures for their children. It will define the most fascinating and important region of the U.S. for visitors from around the world.

Ten Years of Houston Institute for Culture

Over ten years, Houston Institute for Culture has produced some pretty fantastic programs that have provided great benefits to the city. The building of the Houston Museum of Culture will ensure that the best of them are carried on for decades to come, with even greater value and impact.
Rather than 60 programs per year, the museum will have more than 300 days of multiple programs daily.

Rather than 200 students, the museum will have the resources to serve 20,000 children in schools and see as many as 250,000 come to its exhibits and programs.

Instead of 15 local and two or three national and international exhibits per year, museum facilities will present an acclaimed permanent exhibit, 10 to 15 national and international touring exhibits, 60 local exhibits, and its demonstration hall will launch touring exhibits for the world to see.

By offering excellent educational programs and worthy cultural arts and media arts entertainment, the Houston Museum of Culture will see more than a million visitors per year.

By providing needed resources for community organizations and extensive university participation, the museum will attract thousands of weekly and monthly repeat visitors, and surpass 75,000 annual members.

Houston Museum of Culture will provide many greatly needed benefits for Houston, including:

-Contribute significantly to Houston's cultural resources;
-Increase cultural tourism;
-Produce exponential growth in support for Houston museums and cultural institutions;
-Improve arts- and culture-related employment;
-Promote thousands of opportunities for artists, cultural/traditional demonstrators, preservationists, historians, academics, lecturers and filmmakers;
