Arts and Events
Outstanding cultural and educational events await you at Rice. Whether you're into theater or politics or you're a spectator or performer, we've got it.
The Shepherd School of Music presents numerous concerts each year, and the student-run
Rice Players produce first-rate theatrical productions. The
Rice Art Gallery, the nation's only university gallery dedicated to installation art, features free, eclectic exhibits year round.
If attending a lecture is more your thing, the
James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy and the
Office of the President bring stimulating speakers in a wide range of topics to campus each year.
Off campus, undergraduates can enjoy the city's outstanding art and theater facilities with Rice's
Passport to Houston, which provides a free METRORail pass and discounted admission to many museums and concert venues.
