One event on Saturday, February 27, 2021 at 12:00 pm


Volunteer with Rice Public Art to help install an original artwork designed by the Dutch collective We Make Carpets.

Participants will be outdoors, wearing masks and socially distant. No special art skills are required, just a willingness to tie ribbons and be part of a team that will create and assemble a temporary outdoor art installation.

This event was originally scheduled for Saturday, February 20, 2021, but was rescheduled due to the winter storm.

There will be an additional barn raising volunteer opportunity on Saturday, March 27, 2021.


Participation is free with registration. There are two one-hour time slots. Register or get more information.

Social Distancing & COVID-19

Businesses and organizations in Houston have opened under modified protocols, following guidelines administered by local health officials, the State of Texas and CDC. At this time, guidance from experts urges people to continue wearing face masks when in public spaces, practice social distancing of at least six feet, limit your touching of surfaces and frequently use hand sanitizer or soap and water to keep your hands clean.

Although vaccines have been approved and distribution has begun, supplies are still limited. Health officials have severely cautioned that it will take until late spring 2021 before the U.S. might be able to expect a level of herd immunity. In the meantime, masks are strongly advised to help curb the increasing spread of COVID-19 this winter.

Before heading out, take time to familiarize with your destination’s requirements or restrictions at this moment, and be sure to contact them ahead of time with any questions or concerns.
