Project Row Houses invited seven exciting local and national artists to engage with the Third Ward and greater Houston Community in the creation of new installations in the Artist Project Houses. The theme, Home. Space. Place. focused on concepts that were centered in the Third Ward community and others that were generic to all urban neighborhoods. These included ideas of home, identity, culture, struggles and perseverance. Some artists drew upon the historical significance of the shotgun house, while others collected memories from Third Ward residents and/or created work in response to the neighborhood. All created artifacts; capsules of visions and memories that resonated throughout the community. Installations ranged from formal to more conceptual, utilizing a variety of materials and processes.
