Lawndale Art Center was founded in 1979 by artist James Surls, who was an instructor at the University of Houston. The art center opened in a 100,000-square foot warehouse and provided studio space for MFA students. Surls created an exhibition area in the warehouse, and the Lawndale Art Center soon had expanded programming exploring experimental, alternative works and performances by other artists in the community and beyond. In 1992 the Lawndale Art Center moved into its current location, a three-story 1930s Art Deco building in Houston's Museum District. From its inception the programming at Lawndale Art Center has been artist driven. Early projects included works by Luis Jimenez, Sue Coe, The Art Guys, Nam June Palk and Rev. Johnnie Swearingen along with performances by Allen Ginsberg, Spaulding Gray, Black Flag and the Meat Puppets. Today Lawndale features four museum-quality galleries, three artist studios and an outdoor sculpture garden.
