Lawndale fills a need. The shows are genuinely interesting, the staff works crazy hard to make each show exceptional, and the vibe is always positive. I support Lawndale because Lawndale supports Houston artists. - David McClain

Finishing School at The Green Painter!
Last month Lawndale staff and interns began refinishing a dresser from the 1960's that was in need of some love! The finished piece is for sale at The Green Painter in the Heights (321 W. 19th) with 1/2 the proceeds benefiting Lawndale. 
New Living / The Green Painter provides healthy and locally produced sustainable products, design and more.
