MERRY CHRISTMAS TO US!
Like Santa's elves, we've worked long and hard behind the scenes on THIS surprise... and lo and behold, Christmas came early for the Stages family and friends this year!
We are overjoyed to announce that on December 19 we completed the purchase of our longtime residence at 3201 Allen Parkway from the City of Houston. We officially own our home! We are immensely grateful to all our advocates and supporters, past and present, who helped make this achievement possible. And this is just the beginning - stay tuned in the New Year for more news about the future of Stages Repertory Theatre!
Stages Repertory Theatre invites visual artists working in all mediums (sculpture, photography, paint, all) to submit their art to Stages in conjunction with our 2013 Surround project, The Economy of the American Dream. The exhibit will open April 12, 2013, and run through June 30 in the Stages lobby area in the Houston Center for the Arts building at 3201 Allen Parkway.
We engage artists to convey their view of the American Dream: 1) What is the American Dream to you? 2) How are you living the American Dream right now? 3) How (or has) has the American Dream evolved?
Please email your submissions (limited to 6) including your website, gallery/portfolio sites or social media sites to Eva Laporte. We will review your submissions and contact you by email with details if your work will exhibit.
