We thank the many members and friends who support the Lawndale throughout the year, and invite you to join them by making a gift today.

No matter the size, charitable contributions play an essential role in promoting the values, ideas, and institutions that make a difference in our communities and around the globe.

Other ways to support Lawndale include:

Fundraising Events

Lawndale’s events celebrate the artists in our community and their profound contributions to society through their work. Proceeds from these fundraising events provide essential support for all that we do at Lawndale, from the creation of new work in our exhibition and Artist Studio programs to our provocative public programming.


Lawndale is always free to visitors, but your Lawndale membership grants you invites to membership preview hours, discounts on Lawndale events and merchandise, early information on upcoming events and exhibitions, and discounts around town!

Check out our membership page for more information.

Lawndale Lending Library

Launching this fall, the Lawndale Lending Library allows collectors to borrow work from local artists, including those in The Big Show 2018. After three lending periods that take place over the course of one year, the Lawndale Lending Library will culminate in a ticketed silent auction wherein the works can be purchased.

Check out our Lawndale Lending Library page for more information.

Venue Rental

Lawndale’s galleries are among the most unique spaces in Houston and are ideal for private events on both a grand and intimate scale. Hosting your event at Lawndale provides your guests with free gallery admission and parking and private access to Lawndale exhibitions.
