For the health and safety of our patrons and speakers, masks may be required for indoor in-person Houston Seminar events, and we strongly prefer registrants to be fully vaccinated. Since events are held at a variety of venues with their own policies and protocols, there may be other requirements for some courses. We make every effort to inform guests in a timely manner if there are additional health and safety guidelines they will be asked to follow. Our trips and study tours, particularly those that include shared transportation or plane flights, may also require guidelines beyond those for in-person courses, which will be determined in conjunction with venues, vendors, and local guidelines. We will make every effort to announce these guidelines as far in advance as possible. Thank you for bearing with us as we continue to navigate the world of COVID-19 while bringing enriching experiences to our audiences.

San Antonio, February 10-13, 2022
Texas’s oldest city, San Antonio is steeped in history and culture. Join the Houston Seminar as we learn how this three-hundred-year-old community is transforming in the twenty-first century. New greenspaces, restoration efforts, and cultural reinterpretations are defining a new era for “the Alamo City.” On this study tour, we will hear from the people who are guiding these visionary efforts.
Crystal Bridges Redux
Bentonville, Arkansas, two nights in Spring 2022
This spring, the Houston Seminar returns to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art for the first time since 2011. We will explore new additions and exhibitions at Crystal Bridges, including The Dirty South, curated by Valerie Cassel Oliver. Led by local experts and Houston architectural historian Stephen Fox, we will traverse northwest Arkansas by motorcoach to see the enormous investment made by community leaders and visit architecturally significant buildings designed by Marlon Blackwell and Fay Jones.
