STORIED THIRD WARD ARTS ORGANIZATION PROJECT ROW HOUSES’upcoming exhibition, Shattering the Concrete: Artists, Activists and Instigators, uses creative practice to spark conversations, build relationships and begin shifting power in the art world from the ground up.
“The exhibition is really about the intersection between art and activism,” guest curator Raquel de Anda said of the biannual, site-specific exhibit.
Seven houses in the Third Ward serve as canvases for socially engaged art. Each house tackles a social issue that directly resonates with hyper local communities in Houston. Themes range from police brutality, environmental justice to indigenous language preservation.
