Hear from the residents of Summer Studios 2016 as they reflect on their experiences in the art houses and present on the installations they've developed, opening August 20. Under the guidance of mentor artist Kaneem Smith and public art director Ryan N. Dennis, the residents have honed their artistic practices, discussed community engagement and developed the installations to be on view.
Participating 2016 residents include Amiri Boykin (Rice University), Rachel Even (University of Houston), Devon Grigsby (University of Houston), Robert Riojas (Texas Southern University), Caroline Ryan (University of Houston) and Huidi Xiang (Rice University).
The residents were selected via a panel of Kaneem Smith (mentor artist), Ryan N. Dennis (Public Art Director, PRH) and Karen Bertonaschi (artist and PRH Board member).
Summer Studios is presented with generous support from Clare Casademont and Michael Metz.
