What is the Harvey Experience Exhibition?

Fort Bend Recovers …with Creativity will present “The Harvey Experience – one year later” an event marking the 1-year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey.  The event will be held on August 25th, 2018 at Constellation Field from 12pm to 2pm.

The event will be a display and exhibition of original, creative works of art – both visual and performing – created and submitted by Fort Bend County residents of all ages and backgrounds that have been impacted by Harvey. We are calling for residents of Fort Bend to tell their Harvey story through writing, poetry & essays, paintings, drawings, photographs, music, dance, etc.

Thoughts for the future!

“After the anniversary event, we would like to have a touring exhibit of the original products of this showcase, perhaps engaging libraries or schools or other gallery spaces across Fort Bend to showcase pieces that represent the body of work as a whole.  We would like to have representative pieces be preserved in a time capsule for future generations.  We understand that we are in a recovery process that is memorable and worth remembering – we are living and making history right now.”  — Dr. Amy Harkins, a psychologist with Easter Seals Greater Houston
