Washington Avenue Arts District presents SITE Houston
The Washington Avenue Arts District will present SITE Houston, a site specific installation art exhibition inside the new Silos on Sawyer studio development in Houston’s First Ward neighborhood. The exhibition, juried by Bill Arning, Director of The Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston, and Jillian Conrad, Associate Professor of Sculpture at The University of Houston, will feature site-specific installations from 27 Houston artists. Visitors to the exhibition will be treated to a multi-discipline approach to art making as they walk through the artwork created specifically for the re-purposed rice silos. SITE Houston is presented in partnership with Houston Arts Alliance and Stella Artois.
SITE Houston has created an environment to promote experimentation and foster excellence in creative thinking within Houston’s artist community. The architecture of the silos framed the artists’ creative process and forced each artist to think about their work in relation to this unique space. SITE Houston will feature internationally recognized artist Will Fowler, as well as other artists of note including Bennie Flores Ansell, Kaneem Smith, Syd Moen, Lorena Morales, Claire Cusack, Michael Crowder, and Trey Duvall.
