Tours & Education

Guided tours are available to small visiting groups, including school tours, while exhibitions are on view. Tours are lead by a member of the Lawndale staff, and are always free of charge. We encourage educators or coordinators of tour groups to preview the exhibitions for content in person or on our Flickr page. For more information, contact Emily Link, Community Engagement Manager, at education@lawndaleartcenter.org or 713-528-5858.

Día de los Muertos

Through the Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead programming, Lawndale Art Center encourages teachers to educate their students about this important celebration and its related art traditions with an invitation to area schools to join us during our Día de los Muertos calendar of events. Lawndale hosts a Family Day Fiesta for students, teachers and the general public, with performances by local organizations including Mixteco Ballet Folklorico.

Educators are also invited to view our Teacher's Resource Page for more information about Día de los Muertos and its history.

Lectures & Workshops

Throughout the year, Lawndale offers lectures and workshops for the public. In conjunction with the Lawndale Artist Studio Program, three resident studio artists offer a public workshop or lecture during their nine-month residency. Lawndale also presents artist talks at exhibition openings, which are free and open to the public.
