Project Row Houses will unveil its latest Artist Round, "Round 50: Race, Health and Motherhood." Curated by PRH Curator and Programs Director Ryan N. Dennis, Round 50 explores how artists, healthcare professionals, practitioners, and philanthropy are responding to the Black maternal mortality rate, a national health care issue that has local ramifications in Third Ward and other neighborhoods in Houston.

Round 50 participating artists include Dem Black Mamas Podcast (South Carolina and Los Angeles-based); Brian Ellison in collaboration with Jasmine Mans (Houston-based); Alexandra Folino (New York City-based); Lindsay Gary in collaboration with Stacey Allen, Cecilie Baxter, and Felicia Thomas (Houston-based); Healthy Women Houston (Houston-based); HTX People Project (Houston-based); and Elise R. Peterson (Los Angeles-based). The artists will create site-specific installations, which aim to have nuanced conversations that raise awareness, offer supportive services, participate in advocacy strategies that have an impact on Third Ward, and share resources and create multiple entryways to engage with the topic that is inclusive.

Guests will have the opportunity to hear from the artists about their individual practices and the inspiration behind their installation during Artists’ Talks. To support neighborhood and economic development, PRH will also host a family-friendly market showcasing a variety of goods and services from Third Ward vendors.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until February 16, 2020.
