December 9: Celebrate the 2017/18 Mural Project by Francesca Fuchs
Lawndale Art Center

November, 2017

Celebrate the 2017/18 Mural Project by Francesca Fuchs with Lawndale! 
Lawndale is excited to announce the 2017/18 Mural Project by Francesca Fuchs!

Celebrate Lawndale's newest Mural Project and the artist, Francesca Fuchs, on Saturday, December 9th, from 4-5:30 pm! We will be toasting Fuchs with Prosecco and St. Arnold's, with a food truck on-site.
 
With a few stripes and shapes in beige, soft whites, and simple grays, Francesca Fuchs transforms Lawndale's blank north wall into the illusion of cathedral pillars, starting a conversation with the building's iconic Art Deco façade and suggesting a deeper consideration of the role that art spaces play in contemporary society.  

Francesca Fuchs was born in London and grew up in Münster, Germany. She completed her BFA at London's Wimbledon School of Art and finished her graduate work at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. Fuchs came to Houston in 1996 for the Core Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Her work has been shown in national and international venues including the ICA, London; The Whitechapel Art Gallery, London; and The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. She had a solo show at the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston in 2007 and was part of the 2017 survey show American Genre: Contemporary Painting at ICA, Maine College of Art. Fuchs has been the recipient of two Artadia Awards, Individual Artist Grants from the City of Houston, and a MacDowell Fellowship. She is Head of Painting at the Glassell School of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
