Third Ward Veteran Appreciation Day
November 19, 2018 | 1 - 4 pm
Emancipation Park | 3018 Emancipation Avenue
In conjunction with the Houston Artist Residency Project, artist Phillip Pyle II is organizing a wrestling match with a modern twist honoring Veterans. Third Ward is home to the largest number of current and former military veterans, and highlights why the Office of Veteran Affairs chose Third Ward as the area for community engagement. Wresting is provided by Doomsday Wrestling and is in partnership with Nameless Sound.
This initiative is supported by Project Row Houses through the Strategic Art Plan, generously funded by Houston Endowment.
Phillip Pyle, II is a visual artist, graphic designer, and photographer based in Houston, Texas whose primary interests are race, humor, advertising, sports and popular culture. Mining imagery from sources diverse as mass consumer culture, contemporary advertising, to ephemera, historical imagery, and hip-hop, Pyle introduces a complex vision that derives from a robust comedic foundation while also looking at the abstraction and transience of our values, and beliefs.
