Join us at 2521 Holman Street on August 10 for a series of presentations from our 2017 Summer Studios residents! The artists are working diligently through the summer, occupying the Art Houses on Holman as studio spaces, as they learn the core concepts of Project Row Houses' approach to art, community engagement, and direct action. Summer Studios is a 6-week residency program that introduces seven emerging artists from local colleges and universities to the concepts and lessons of Project Row Houses. Under the mentorship of CotA-PRH Fellows Carrie Schneider and Carol Zou, the 2017 residents will create and exhibit work that responds to, engages and/or reflects the Third Ward community. Through critiques with local artists and curators, guided discussions with the mentors and visits to other local art spaces, the residents learn to blend their practices into a social context that extends outside of the studio to ignite dialogues and help us see ourselves and others differently. Through this program, we hope to share our knowledge and continue PRH's tradition of fostering a positive, creative environment within the neighborhood that enriches lives and honors culture and history. 2017 Residents Colby Deal, University of Houston Barbara Gamiz, University of St. Thomas Maureen Lax, University of Houston LeAirre Morris, Texas Southern University Luis Parra, Houston Community College Faith Schwartz, Texas Southern University Heather Wright, Rice University Stop by again on Saturday, August 12 from 4-7pm as we unveil the artists' installations at the Summer Studios Opening + Community Market!
