BOX 13 ArtSpace is an artist run nonprofit innovative environment for the creation and advancement of experimental contemporary art in Houston. BOX 13 artists create this environment through the offering of affordable workspaces for emerging and established artists, dedicating five interior spaces to the exhibition of artistic explorations, a window gallery for installations and an outdoor courtyard space. BOX 13 promotes dialogue among artists and the art community on current trends affecting the arts.
We take in new residents as studio spaces open up on an ongoing basis. We review new member applications as a group. We evaluate applicants both on their work and on their ability and attitude to participate within the BOX 13 community.
We are currently accepting applications for new members. See ‘opportunities’ page for details.
The founding members of BOX 13 are Elaine Bradford, Woody Golden, Michael Henderson, Young-Min Kang, Kathy Kelley, Teresa O’Connor, Whitney Riley and Mat Wolff.
BOX 13 ArtSpace is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
BOX 13 ArtSpace relies on individual donors and its resident artists for funding to cultivate creation, appreciation and accessibility of contemporary experimental visual art within the community for its cultural enrichment. Please join us in this endeavor. To learn more about our donors and sponsors click here.
