Pans on the Fire, at Art House

When has anyone only had one thing going at a time? Like all the other organizations with which I am familiar, Art House (AH) has multiple projects cooking all at once. Along with a very full slate of programming in the schools, collaborations with other organizations for free workshops, more Art House studio FFS classes, and preparations for sixteen summer camps, we have a few more things planned for the coming months.

As I write this in late March, the construction crew is pouring concrete for the new walkway—right up to our front door. Since mid-February, our lot has undergone multiple transformations—tons of earth, gravel, and old asphalt have been piled up to connect a catch basin, create the bioswale, and relocate the parking lot. Concurrently, we are raising funds to realize all of the other elements that will complete the Creative Garden. The exciting design for a campus entryway is progressing.

We look forward to hearing April’s Community Culture Night guest, Darice Polo, speak about her work and current film project, Brújula, which explores her grandparents’ emigration from Puerto Rico.

Soon, we will be transforming the AH studio to install the Annual Urban Bright Exhibition to showcase our students’ accomplishments during the 2022-23 school year.
