Transcript PROJECT ROW HOUSES Celebrating the heritage & citizens of Houston's Third Ward A group of once-decrepit shotgun houses just west of UH are a center of opportunity for the Third Ward thanks to a group of artists and community activists. Project Row Houses, which artist Rick Lowe founded in 1 992 on Holman Avenue, holds a variety of programs benefiting the Third Ward community. Perhaps the most public of them is a series of art installations celebrating black culture, art and history mounted in a block of the narrow, wooden houses that were once hallmarks of Houston's oldest neighborhoods. But out of the public eye, PRH's Young Mothers Program gives single mothers support for a year, allowing them to live in two-bedroom homes with kitchens and laundry facilities. Some of the houses are converted shotguns, while others are innovative, economical new construction. The women attend life-skills courses and counseling, go to school and have jobs. There's also an on-site day care facility for their children. This year was a busy one for PRH. Its eighth annual Art and Music Festival was held in mid- November, featuring interactive ail exhibits, walking tours and performances from noted local blues musicians. The PRH campus also expanded this year with the opening of eight housing units in four new duplex buildings. "The new housing was designed for people that live here," Antoine Bryant, project manager for the Rowhouse Community Development Corp., said. "(It's) quality new housing that people here could afford." Bryant said the staff is particularly proud of one young woman who began the Young Mothers' Program in 1997. "She was on academic probation at UH and was raising a child at the same time. She went on to succeed academically and just defended her dissertation at Penn State. She's now an associate professor at The University of Pittsburgh," Bryant said. The group is looking forward to another busy year ahead; plans include beginning an art program for local teenagers. "We are always welcoming volunteers," Bryant said. For information, call (713) 526-7662 or visit www.projectrowhouses.org. Amanda Zirgulis The Daily Cougar 176 Community
