Meet & Greet The Real (Art) World Residents

DiverseWorks has borrowed the familiar intro to MTV’s The Real World to show off their artists-in-residence: “See what happens when people start making art and start getting real.” The organization is hosting Meet & Greet: The Real (Art) World Residents, where you can see what the DW artists-in--residence have been up to for the last couple of weeks. This year’s artists are Maria Guzman, who works in sculpture and found materials; Tina Kotrla, who melds visual art with poetry; Kia Neill, who explores where nature meets kitsch; and Eric Zapata, who uses Photoshop-like magic to manipulate photos. Meet the artists, see their most recent work and take a peek at the creative process today from 6 to 8 p.m. 1117 East Freeway. For information, call 713-335-3445 or visit www.diverseworks.org. Free.
