Sawyer Yards Second Saturday Volunteer Call

Sawyer Yards Second Saturday Volunteer Call

Volunteers needed for a special Second Saturday open studio night to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing!

Event Details:


Sawyer Yards is part of history as one of the
largest creative communities in the nation and we can’t wait to join
Houstonians in celebrating the Moon landing’s historic 50th anniversary!


On the Second Saturday of every month, Sawyer
Yards invites the public to tour more than 350 open art studios, explore an
outdoor makers market and grab a craft brew with friends and family.


July’s Second Saturday will be out of this
world with a variety of space-themed fitness offerings, craft beer and
interactive art experiences throughout the campus.


From 6-10 p.m.,
Sawyer Yards will host the following activities in conjunction with the outdoor
Market at Sawyer Yards and Second Saturday Open Studios:

- Relive the experience of being in space with
projections of the solar system in the old Silos train shed and clips of the
moon landing shown on the historic Riviana Rice silos

- Enjoy a specialty craft beer and space-themed
movies at Holler Brewing Co.

- Grab your friends for space-themed photo
opportunities in select buildings

- Create your own artwork at Expressions in
Molten Metal with Houston-artist Jack Gron, an interactive experience that
allows the public to create their own design in a resin sand scratch block that
will then be turned into a cast aluminum block by Gron’s mobile foundry. Bring
your creativity and let it shine!

To ensure
the smooth execution of this special Second Saturday, we are going to need some
extra hands on deck from volunteers. If you are available and interested in
helping out the Houston creative community, sign up to be a volunteer!
