Contemporary Arts Museum Houston

Art at Noon | Henk Rossouw

Friday, Jan. 26, 2018 – Friday, Jan. 26, 2018

12:00 PM – 01:00 PM


Join Henk Rossouw, a poet and visiting assistant professor in the University of Houston’s Honors College to learn more about the materiality of language in Christopher Knowles: In a Word. Rossouw will speak about the enticement of poetry outside the frame of the book, the role of everyday urban repetitions—the chorus of the city, and the composition process.

Light lunch provided by Houston’s very own Pink’s Pizza, founded in the Historic Heights, serving hand-tossed pizza pies since 2007. Our City. Our Pizza.
