About the Event
Lawndale will activate its fall 2022 season both inside and outside as part of its programming.
Outside in the Mary E. Bawden Sculpture Garden from 11 AM – 5 PM, artist Cindee Travis Klement will share seeds, cuttings, and knowledge about her social sculpture, Symbiosis, spreading the ethos of how to restore ecological balance in your own backyard.
Then join us from 1 – 4 PM in the Cecily E. Horton Gallery for performances by artists featured in Lo que me queda de tu amor (What’s left of your love for me). Artists include Andre Samano, JB Baladad, and Stalina Villarreal.
Throughout the day, Trees for Houston will give away a few hundred native trees on behalf of Symbiosis.
While visiting, make sure to check out our neighbors as well:
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) is celebrating the return of their HANDS-ON HOUSTON FAMILY FESTIVAL, a free community event for families and visitors of all ages. This year, HCCC celebrates recycling and CraftTexas 2022 with indoor/outdoor hands-on activities and food and refreshments from a local food truck. Learn about upcycling and reuse through these hands-on activities: Rope making with the Contemporary Handweavers of Houston, mini polymer-clay pies in bottle caps, and mixed-media jewelry.
Houston Met Dance will offer community movement classes at 12:30, 1:15, and 2 pm, during which a dance artist will lead the group through a process of creating and exploring dance based on the theme of recycling. In the upstairs studio, younger family members can join Express Children’s Theater for a Single Person Storytelling event based on monarch butterflies. Visitors can also enjoy pop-up performances throughout the space.
