Neon MARTY Dance Party!
A Montrose Art Party (MARTY)
Benefiting Art League Houston’s Healing Art Program
Co-Chaired by Bobby Bass and Zachary Gresham
Art League Houston is thrilled to invite the public to one of the organization’s most important events of the year, the 2018 Montrose Art Party (MARTY) on Friday, May 18 from 6 – 9 PM benefiting ALH's Healing Art program.
This year’s event, Neon MARTY Dance Party is co-chaired by Bobby Bass and Zachary Gresham and features live music by DJ Flash Gordon Parks, a cash bar (with a very special NEON concoction!), delectable bites, a silent art auction as well as an exhibition of artwork by artists participating in the Healing Art program. Furthermore, the event will honor the National Council of Jewish Women - Greater Houston Section for their continued support of the Healing Art program and its participants.
Established in 1990 by Patrick Palmer, the Healing Art program provides free art instruction and supplies to adults living with chronic illness and physical disabilities. Students attend classes led by experienced artist-teachers where they work on both individual and group art projects. Since many students are living on fixed incomes, tuition and art supplies are provided at no cost. These classes create a network of support in a safe environment and the sales of artwork from this exhibit help to supplement the income of Healing Art participants.
Art League Houston, one of Houston’s oldest arts organizations, connects the community through diverse, dynamic, and creative experiences that bring people together to see, make, and talk about contemporary visual art. Healing Art is a program near and dear to our hearts and we are thrilled to be chairing this exciting event and hope that you can support us in our efforts.
Como nos Expresamos! How We Express Ourselves
Art League Houston and Writers in the Schools (WITS) are pleased to present an exhibition of artwork and writing by over one hundred 2nd and 3rd graders at Wharton Dual Language K-8 Academy who have been in Art League Houston's Artbound! and WITS residency programs.
Art League Houston's artist residency program, ArtBound!, is a curriculum-based, in-school integrative arts program at H.I.S.D. elementary schools with little or no visual arts instruction. Classroom teachers participate in the planning process to ensure that the residencies support and enhance their classroom curriculum. Each residency has an Art League Houston Teaching Artist visiting a school eight to ten times during a semester, working with three classrooms per visit. For each visit, the teaching artist works with each class for approximately one hour. Art League Houston Teaching Artists are professional artists and experienced teaching artists. In addition, the ArtBound! residencies integrate into H.I.S.D. curriculum and is provided primarily to grade levels third through fifth.
Each ArtBound! residency includes a culminating event, which can be an informal showing of student art work at the participating school or at a neighborhood library or other venue. The Art League Houston Teaching Artist collects the artwork from the teachers and works with an Art League staff member to prepare and hang the art.
Since 2008, over 4,000 elementary students in H.I.S.D. have received visual arts instruction through the ArtBound! program that would otherwise not have access.
