About the Greet:
The Moody Center for the Arts is an exciting new arts destination in Houston. Come explore exhibitions by groundbreaking artists, then enjoy a coffee in our café. We are located in a state-of-the-art building on Rice University campus, conveniently located at Campus Entrance 8 at University Blvd. and Stockton St. The award-winning building by acclaimed architect Michael Maltzan serves as an experimental platform for creating and presenting works in all disciplines; we have galleries, a black box theater, project studios, student classrooms, and a café. Depending on how much time you have, you can also explore some of Rice Public Art’s collection on Rice’s arboretum-like campus. We are open from 10am-5pm, Tuesday through Saturday, and admission is free. This fall the Moody presents “The Demon in the Diagram,” an engaging new exhibition and public program by New York based artist Matthew Ritchie (b. 1964), featuring paintings, lightboxes, an interactive floor and audio work commissioned for the Moody, and a virtual reality component on view through Dec. 22.

My name is Shelia, and I have served as one of the Moody’s volunteer greeters since it opened in February 2017. The Moody is a beautiful building that offers much to see, from exhibitions to architecture. I’d love to share it with you!
My name is Jean, and I have also served as one of the Moody’s volunteer greeters since it’s February 2017 opening. Rice is a great campus to visit and this gives you a place to start exploring. The architecture is bold, and we have terrific changing exhibitions, including usually at least one interactive installation. Come and let me start you on your Rice experience.
