Project Row Houses Free Admission Wednesday

Free Admission Wednesday from 12am to 5pm at Project Row Houses - see INFO below. In 1992, artist and community activist Rick Lowe took part in a tour of the neighborhood of Third Ward, organized by Houston city officials. This neighborhood was widely recognized as one of Houstons most challenging areas, marked by dilapidated houses, boarded-up businesses, and a steadily rising crime rate. Amidst these conditions, Lowe possessed a unique vision in recognizing the untapped potential within the community a vision then fueled by a plan, like-minded partners, and imagination. That vision transformed the corner at Live Oak and Holman into an epicenter of cultural arts in Houston. Rick Lowes insight saw the potential of this area for the betterment of the community, and he brought together a group of artists who not only responded to his vision, but enriched and built upon itJames Bettison, Bert Long Jr., Jesse Lott, Floyd Newsum, Bert Samples, and George Smith. Informed by their ongoing interrogation of the challenges and unmet promises in the contemporary art scene, along with the philosophies of Joseph Beuys and the artistic legacy of Dr. John Biggers, these seven founders conceived a plan to establish a haven for Black artists to connect and create opportunities. More significantly, the collective invited the entire Third Ward community to join as cocreators. More Info below.
