Coming soon!

If you drove down Main Street this weekend, you might have noticed a change happening on Lawndale's north exterior wall. Daniel Anguilu is leading a group of 6 artists to create a new mural in the coming weeks to kick off the 2012-2013 season this August. 

As a continuation of the "Famous Monsters" mural created by Daniel Anguilu for the 2011-2012 season, Lawndale Art Center presents a collaborative mural by Daniel AnguiluJames BurnsTierney L. MaloneAngel Quesada,Michael C. RodriguezRoland Salda (Sode) and Dandee Warhol on view August 24, 2012 - January 12, 2013. This project is the first collaborative effort for this group of artists. Elements of street art will help to navigate the narrative design and special attention will be paid to complimenting the building's historic nature and location. Alex Luster, director of "Stick 'em Up!", will document the process and present a digital-short to accompany an artist panel to be held at Lawndale.

Keep an eye on the wall in the coming weeks to see the progress and come inside to see the always rotating exhibitions featuring Houston area artists.Lawndale is currently seeking proposals from artists  for future mural projects. Check out our exhibition proposal page to learn how to apply! 

This project is generously sponsored by Kinzelman Art Consulting.

The Big Show 2012
Submission dates: June 27, 2012, 12-8 PM 
& June 28, 2012 10 AM - 5PM 

Marco Antonini, Gallery Director 
Brooklyn, NY 

The Big Show is Lawndale Art Center's annual open-call, juried exhibition. It has been an important venue through which emerging and under-represented Houston area artists gain exposure since the show's conception in 1984. The Big Show was formerly the East End Show, sponsored by the East End Progress Association, at Lawndale's original location.

Each year Lawndale Art Center invites a guest juror to select from work submitted by artists living within 100 miles of Houston. Artists are invited to bring up to three works of art, not previously shown in Houston, to Lawndale Art Center where the work is juried on-site for a chance to be included in the show and a shot at one of three cash prizes.


Important dates:
Submission dates (work must be delivered to Lawndale):
June 27, 2012, 12-8 PM & June 28, 2012 10 AM - 5PM

Pick up dates (for work not selected for the exhibition): 
July 2 & 3, 2012, 10 AM - 5 PM

Exhibition on view July 13 - August 11, 2012
