Viza-Go-Go Exhibits at Innovation Underground

Viza-Go-Go 19 was great! I can’t decide what I enjoyed more – watching people walk their way through an entire building while walking in place or seeing their reactions to the 3D art. I do know that we were thrilled to have Viza-Go-Go’s exhibit on the first floor of the Innovation Underground during First Friday weekend this month.

Exceptionally talented Texas A&M Architecture students shared their wares as part of a showcase that stretched along Bryan’s 26th Street from the Palace Theater to Village Café and our own Innovation Underground at the Federal Building.

The Palace Theater was packed as First Friday crowds stretched and craned to enjoy a glimpse of the animation showcase. We got a peek into the effort that goes into making animated creatures move so realistically and were entertained by the murder mystery that was woven into the film showcase.

Up the street at the Village Café (also know as the home of Art 979), an exhibit of undergraduate work from the visualization program took over the coffee house walls. The art is for sale, so be sure to stop by the Café and check it out.

Across the alley, at the Innovation Underground the graduate exhibit drew a crowd too. We were thrilled to host so many people in what was once the local post office. The Federal Building has been home to the USPS, the IRS and other federal agencies. Today, it’s our home for the Innovation Underground. We house eight businesses in incubation offices and provide a quiet place to work for freelancers at the Creative Space.

On the first floor, we’ll offer space for meetings and events in our Parlor Gallery and Library and we even have a unique outdoor venue in the patio garden.

Viza-Go-Go got us started and future events will be hard pressed to draw such a crowd but the venue stood the test…providing a space for innovative events with easy access to all that historic downtown Bryan has to offer.

If you missed Viza-Go-Go, enjoy these photos. If you have an event or meeting coming up, we hope you’ll consider the Innovation Underground. We’d love to have you here with us.
