PROJECT ROW HOUSES
– A row of REBORN shotgun houses is the unlikely home of cutting-edge art and visionary thinking about inner city renewal.
Project Row Houses (PRH) is a neighborhood-based, nonprofit art and cultural organization in Houston’s Northern Third Ward, one of the city’s oldest African-American communities.
PRH began in 1993 as a result of discussions among African-American artists who wanted to establish a positive, creative presence in their own community.
PRH is founded on the principle that art-and the community it creates-can be the foundation for revitalizing depressed inner-city neighborhoods. This principle was is in part based on the philosophy of German artist Joseph Beuys (1921 – 1986) who coined the phrase “social sculpture,” which transformed the idea of sculpture as an art form into a social activity. Thus, the mission of Project Row Houses is to create community through the celebration of art, African American history and culture.
