About Art Junction
Art Junction is a student-organized fundraiser event supporting public artwork and encouraging participation in the arts. They invite professional and high school artists to create one-of-a-kind pieces on 5 x 7 inches illustration board for a silent auction and sale, and 100% of the sales go directly towards a local public art project.
About ALH's Esplanade Program
Established in 2012-2013, The Esplanade Project is a community driven, temporary public art installation project designed to invigorate Houston's lower Montrose Boulevard and the surrounding neighborhood. This program is in partnership with the City of Houston and is a pilot project for the City of Houston. Participating artists receive an artist fee for the design, creation, and installation of their work as well as funding for materials and associated expenses.
