Rice’s art car celebrates the Owl in the school’s centennial year

Rice University will celebrate the 25th annual Art Car Parade this weekend by entering an Owl-designed vehicle — called “Centenni-Owl” — in recognition of the school’s centennial year. The unconventional event, boasted as the largest art car parade in the world, runs from 1 to 3 p.m. May 12 along Allen Parkway, from Waugh Drive to Bagby Street in Houston. For more information on the Art Car Parade, visit www.thehoustonartcarparade.com.
