Winter Street Studios, 2012

Since 2005 Winter Street Studios has been and continues to be one of the most exciting work spaces for Houston’s creative community. An old furniture factory scheduled for demolition has become the home of 75 art studios for over 87 local artists. Winter Street Studios, under the vision of Jon Deal and Avenue CDC, has laid the floor plan for a centralized, thriving arts community inside the loop. They have cultivated a unique and productive space where established artists and emerging artists and organizers and visionaries thrive in what they desire to do—make art. Artists participating in the video are: Chris Silkwood, Eddie Hall, Joan Bohn, Ian Anderson, Micah Simmons, Kevin Peterson, Rose Hohenberger, Cheryl Tamborello, Carolyn “Cookie” Ashton, Kelley Devine, Michael Arceri, Deborah Morris, Marthann Masterson, Danny Clark, Dianne Webb, Alex Wilhite, Nicola Parente, Camille Pendleton, Sandi Seltzer Bryant, Van McFarland, Betsy Evans, Mitch Samuels, and William H. Miller.
