Eye on Third Ward
Kandace Simmons, Someone´s Laundry Dryer, 2005
The Museum of Fine Arts is hosting Eye on Third Ward , “a twelve-year collaboration between the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Magnet School of Communication at Jack Yates High School. Each year, select photographs taken by students present a new look at one of Houston´s oldest communities. Dating to 1840, Third Ward is one of the four original ‘wards’ of the city of Houston, precursors of today´s city council districts.”
The exhibit runs until June 24, 2007.
A thorough history of the six wards of Houston can be found here. Fascinating stuff….
