2017 Lawndale Mural Project

2017/2018 Mural by Francesca Fuchs, Image by Peter Molick

Lawndale is excited to announce the 2017 Mural Project, created by Francesca Fuchs.

With a few stripes and shapes in beige, soft whites, and simple grays, Francesca Fuchs transforms Lawndale's blank north wall into the illusion of cathedral pillars, starting a conversation with the building's iconic Art Deco façade and suggesting a deeper consideration of the role that art spaces play in contemporary society.

Francesca Fuchs was born in London and grew up in Münster, Germany. She completed her BFA at London's Wimbledon School of Art and finished her graduate work at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. Fuchs came to Houston in 1996 for the Core Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Her work has been shown in national and international venues including the ICA, London; The Whitechapel Art Gallery, London; and The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. She had a solo show at the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston in 2007 and was part of the 2017 survey show American Genre: Contemporary Painting at ICA, Maine College of Art. Fuchs has been the recipient of two Artadia Awards, Individual Artist Grants from the City of Houston, and a MacDowell Fellowship. She is Head of Painting at the Glassell School of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
