Celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2018, Art League Houston is one of Houston’s oldest non-profit art organizations. It was established in 1948 by a group of sixteen artists as a member organization whose mission was to design a building that would house a studio workshop and gallery for the continual exhibition of artwork by local artists. Art League Houston’s mission is to cultivate awareness, appreciation, and accessibility of contemporary visual art within the community for its cultural enrichment. It achieves its mission through various programs that include the Art League School, exhibitions, public art, Healing Art, a program for adults living with chronic illnesses and disabilities, ArtBound!, an in-school visual arts residency for Houston public schools with little or no visual arts access, and also a Summer High School Studio Art Intensive. Art League Houston annually provides access to over 1,200 individuals through education and outreach programs.
