Lawndale Art Center – The Big Show

We visit The Big Show at the Lawndale Art Center, the gallery's annual open-call, juried exhibition of work by emerging and under-represented visual artists who live in Southeast Texas!

Bob Stevenson chats with artists Rodney Flores, Matt Messinger and Emily Grenader, the three regional artists whose work was not only selected for inclusion in this year’s Big Show at the Lawndale Art Center, but were also awarded cash prizes by juror Larissa Harris of New York’s Queens Art Museum.
