HipClub Monthly Meeting
October 12 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Date: Tuesday, October 12, 2021 from 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm.
Location: We are planning on another hybrid meeting where those that want to meet at Trini Mendenhall Community Center, which is located at 1414 Wirt Rd., Houston 77055, can and those that would like to participate remotely can use Zoom for a Virtual Meeting. The link for Zoom is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83699823055. There is no passcode required as Tim will be utilizing the waiting room. Please try to attend in person as that makes for a more rewarding experience for all.
Pre-Meeting Dinner: Our reinstituted regular pre-dinner meeting will be at Goode Co. Barbeque at 8911 Katy Freeway, Houston, 77024. We meet between 5:15 and 5:30 p.m.

September Program: Thanks to Oona Nelson for presenting this month with a focus on exploring and critiquing aspects of consumption, abundance and decay. We saw within her work a blending of art history, the contemporary cult of convenience, along with the corresponding environmental threats and distorted value systems – trying to balance the grotesque and the beautiful. As we found out, within the past week Oona moved from San Francisco to upstate New York for a new change.
October Program: Tommy LaVergne will be our speaker. For over three decades, he has been the University Photographer for Rice. “His assignments, many of which have been for Rice, have given him the opportunity to photograph an extremely diverse group of dignitaries and educators, including five United States Presidents: Nixon, Ford, Carter, Bush, and Clinton, as well as Henry Kissinger, John Connally, James A. Baker III, Colin Powell, Vladimir Putin, Mikhail Gorbachev, Helmut Kohl, Madeline Albright, Yassar Arafat and U.N. Secretary Kafi Annan.”
