Jackson Boulevard: Palimpsest of Urban Life and Southern Myth by Randal Hall

...street patterns and industrial buildings on the east side of Montrose. That vestigial remnant of Jackson east of Montrose became attractive for development. A car wash, a door and windows supply shop, and an...

    Jackson Boulevard: Palimpsest of Urban Life and Southern Myth by Randal Hall | OffCite Blog
    Randal Hall is Editor, Journal of Southern History, and Associate Professor of History at Rice University. Jackson Boulevard is short. Running from Waugh Drive to Montrose Boulevard and a stone's throw beyond, it covers barely more than two east-to-west blocks. Even a near-sighted bookworm like me can see from end to end.

Great new article about Aurora in Arts+Culture Texas as we approach our 20th anniversary and Aurora20 celebration! Thanks Nancy Zastudil. And thanks to all who've been a part of this exciting endeavor! So far, so good. #Aurora20

    What remains to be seen: Houston's Aurora Picture Show at 20

Typically this phrase precedes a stunt, mishap, or otherwise social-media-meme-worthy epic fail. But in the picture perfect world of Aurora Picture Show, it translates into community support, successful collaboration, and artistic experimentation.
