Project Row Houses' numerological designation is 5. It’s 5 whether you calculate from the birth of its first offering to the community in 1994 or if you do it from the number of letters in its name. 5 is the number that signifies Action/Restlessness in numerology.

The Life Path 5 suggests that PRH entered this plane with a highly progressive mindset, with the attitude and skills to make the world a better place. The key word for Life Path 5 is freedom. In the pursuit of freedom, PRH is naturally versatile, adventurous, and advanced in its group thinking. It is one of those organizations that always strive to find answers to the many questions that life poses. The byword for the positive Life Path 5 is constant change and improvement. PRH wants to be totally unrestrained, as 5 is the number most often associated with the productive use of freedom.

The artists selected to participate in Round 30 will represent the original intent of PRH- the conjoining of art and community. They will be charged with creating a house installation that speaks to the notion of freedom in the context of action/restlessness and community engagement.
