Transcript The Lawndale Annex Lawndale offers larger studio space than any other Texas university, photo by Michael Williams The Lawndale Annex, an off-campus facility with painting and sculpture studios, a warehouse and an acclaimed art and performance gallery, dodged a bullet in late January. The Art Department had been asked to come up with a plan to move the graduate painting studios housed at Lawndale into the old Art and Architecture Annex on campus. One of the problems art faculty and physical plant personnel faced was how to squeeze 21,000 square feet of studio space at Lawndale into half as much at ARA, a miserable, leaky pre-World War II Quonset hut that once was an army tank garage. After months of work on preliminary plans, the art faculty were told by memo that the studios would not be moved after all. A move would have devoured most of the half-million dollar fund budgeted for just such an exigency. Lawndale wasn't exactly a prize structure, either. The old building had long been under scrutiny from City of Houston officials who had found fire and building code violations everywhere. Only the fact that the State of Texas owned it had prevented the city from shutting it down. Indeed, some faculty and staff deplored the university's continued use of Lawndale, since people often became ill from the extreme temperatures or the poor ventilation. President Richard Van Horn toured the facility after one student injured herself by falling through a grate-covered hole in the floor. Lawndale was, however, a place with more studio space than likely would be found anywhere else on campus. Art Department Chair Michael Taylor said that the problem was not going to be resolved properly until a new fine arts building could be funded and constructed. "I hope that happens while I'm still around," he said. — Paul Binz City Life 29
