Summer Studios is a 6-week residency program that introduces seven emerging artists from local colleges and universities to the concepts and lessons of Project Row Houses. Under the mentorship of CotA-PRH Fellows Carrie Schneider and Carol Zou, the 2017 residents will create and exhibit work that responds to, engages and/or reflects the Third Ward community.
Through critiques with local artists and curators, guided discussions with the mentors and visits to other local art spaces, the residents learn to blend their practices into a social context that extends outside of the studio to ignite dialogues and help us see ourselves and others differently. Through this program, we hope to share our knowledge and continue PRH's tradition of fostering a positive, creative environment within the neighborhood that enriches lives and honors culture and history.
