The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art presents "Old, Weird Houston," a local alternative history fair and symposium that preserves, interprets, and shares the hidden histories of unusual and creative people, institutions, and events that have made our city one of the most diverse and livable in the country.
Organized collaboratively with Archivists of the Houston Area (AHA!) and the University of Houston Center for Public History, "Old, Weird Houston" features a day-long schedule of speakers and panels, from a keynote address to presentations by students active in the fields of history and library science. Regional archives both private and public display offbeat, rarely seen materials from their collections in a fair-style setting along with food trucks and vendors specializing in Houston-proud books, crafts, and apparel.
Additional details and schedule to be announced soon.
