For a peek inside a great art institution, check out Houston’s Lawndale Arts Center from home. A multidisciplinary art center, Lawndale "believes in the role of art and artists to inspire and inform the world around us." The center introduces artists to a larger audience and provides a range of exhibitions, film screenings, and more. If you would like to virtually explore, here is some of what you can discover from our Houston apartments:
Marcelyn McNeil: Good Day Bad Day
Good Day Bad Day highlights Marcelyn McNeil's experimental approach to painting and process. The exhibition features twelve larger-than-life-sized works. The pieces are made up of bright hues and are both elegant and understated. Marcelyn challenges assumptions about abstraction and shows her work across Texas. She earned an MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago and later taught painting for two years at the University of Houston.
Cindee Travis Klement: Preview of Symbiosis
While no longer on public view, Preview of Symbiosis can still be enjoyed online. Created by Cindee Travis Klement, the piece "introduces color, texture, and variation through native plants." Based in Houston, Cindee worked in construction and commercial real estate before realizing her dream of becoming an artist. Many of her recent works highlight conservation issues, and they're also on view at the Houston Flood Museum.
Help support Lawndale's mission of offering quality programming by shopping from its online store. You'll find custom-printed picnic blankets, Baggu duck bags, and Lawndale thermoses, among other items. To see pictures or to make a purchase, contact the center by email.
After virtually exploring Houston’s Lawndale Arts Center, take an online music class. Offered by a local school, you can enhance your skills by playing the guitar, violin, and other instruments. To call Lincoln Heights home, please contact us. We would love for you to see firsthand everything that you can enjoy as a resident of our apartments in Houston, TX.
