Saturday, June 2, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until Saturday, June 23, 2018
Project Row Houses (PRH), a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering people and enriching communities through engagement, art and direct action, is hosting a series of Founders Bus Tours on Saturdays, June 2 – 23 as part of its year-long 25th anniversary celebration.
The tour, led by Ryan N. Dennis, Curator and Programs Director, and Jeanette Degollado, Public Art Coordinator, will take participants on a journey to view works that build upon the backdrop of iconic sites across Houston. Stops include the University of Houston-Downtown, the Station Museum of Contemporary Art, Hermann Park and more.
Joining the tour are some of the legendary founding artists themselves, including Jesse Lott, Floyd Newsum, Bert Samples and George Smith. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore and reflect on the founding artists’ rich artistic practices through a compelling discussion.
Now in its 25th year, PRH was a thought experiment conceived by an extraordinary group of artists who have been active in the Houston community, especially the Third Ward, for decades. The bus tours are a part of PRH’s year-long celebration for this milestone anniversary.
