Community Day Join Lawndale and our neighbors HCCC and Houston Met Dance for a day of programs!
About the event
Lawndale will activate its spring 2023 season both inside and outside as part of its programming.
Inside Lawndale’s galleries starting at 11 AM The Filipinx Artists of Houston will unveil their member designed Zine to the Houston public. In 2022 their artist collective received one of the inaugural BIPOC Arts Network and Fund (BANF) grants for programs and to support their mission “To grow a creative Filipinx community – committed to discovering and sharing the stories of voices unheard, through each of their own gifts while being rooted in the collective, and individual experience of being human.” This Zine represents voices from within their community and was developed and created through collaborative workshops over the last few months.
At 4 PM Chelsea Clarke will give an artist talk for her exhibit Soft Serve in the Cecily E. Horton gallery on the second floor.
Outside in the Mary E. Bawden Sculpture Garden starting at 11 AM chickens will explore Symbiosis! Join sculptor and artist Cindee Travis Klement who will be sharing native plant cuttings, seeds, and information about how principles – such as the animal impact of chickens – can be adapted to your own backyard. Then at 1 PM Betty from Wabash Feed Store will share additional information on caring for chickens in an urban setting.
While visiting, make sure to check out our neighbors as well:
