My first visit to Project Row Houses was 12 years ago. I wasn’t a member, just curious about the Third Ward community and how a row of houses was being utilized as art spaces. When I visited, I realized that I was only seeing the organization at its surface. I learned that it was much more than a place to host art installations.
My understanding of Project Row Houses has evolved since that trip. A few years ago, I became a member of PRH's Board of Directors, and it’s been a phenomenal experience. I’ve been treated to rounds of art installations, attended classes on art collecting, listened to community discussions on nearby development and been inspired by the stories of our young mothers. My involvement with the organization has helped me grow as an individual and a citizen.
I hope that today, on Giving Tuesday, you will consider joining the PRH familyas part of their robust membership program. In becoming a member of Project Row Houses, you not only support the organization, you become a member of a community that embraces and enriches a diverse neighborhood.
Whether it’s being engaged in community discussions on development, enriched by another round of installations by incredible artists or empowered to do more to support the Young Mother's Residential Program, there are many ways you can have a meaningful experience as a member of the PRH family.
Next year is the 25th Anniversary of Project Row Houses. We’re looking forward to celebrating the hundreds of artists who have exhibited their work, the families that have participated in our programs and the history of our Third Ward community.
I hope you will join as a member today and gear up for a spectacular year!
PS. Join us for Cocktails in the Courtyard, an evening that's sure to be a wonderful experience whether it's your first time at PRH or your hundredth!
