Mission Statement

Project Row Houses' mission is to create community through the celebration of arts and African-American history and culture.

Description

Project Row Houses was founded as a result of discussons between African-American artists who believed they had a contribution to make to their own communities: a unique gift for raising issues in a way that generates constructive dialogue and creative solutions. This vision was pursued by Houston artist and activist Rick Lowe, who discovered the abandoned site of 22 shotgun-style houses in 1992. The African origin of the houses provided a unique environment for the creation of works which engage the community in the creative process, celebrate African-American culture and history and address educational and community issues. Our work is founded in public art and education programs which encompass neighborhood revitalization, historic preservation, and community service. PRH provides a culturally and historically significant site for the preservation of art works based in issues that involve the community in the creative process. Our programs are designed to identify and cultivate a new vision of opportunity in our Third Ward community.
