021. Lawndale

Lawndale Art Center, 4912 Main St. Lawndale started out in 1979 in a warehouse on Lawndale St., but in 1993 the alternative exhibition space moved to Main St. where there are 4 gallery spaces and an outdoor sculpture garden. Regular annual events include the Day of the Dead show, the Design Show and a summer juried open call, "The Big Show."  Almost all exhibitions are based on proposals of experimental, non-commercial work by emerging and established artists, with an emphasis on artists with a connection to Houston.  The outdoor mural "Famous Monsters", painted by Dan Anguilu, a driver for the Houston Metro's light rail system, went up in August and will be there until at least June 2012.
