Art in the heart of Houston’s Third Ward: The Project Row Houses

PBS NewsHour did an awesome story on the Project Row houses, an art and community revitalization project in the heart of Houston’s Third Ward neighborhood. The “Tre”, as locals affectionately call the Third Ward, has a reputation of a dangerous, impoverished neighborhood but the video shows most people are just as hard working like in any other neighborhood… and with an artistic streak on top of that work ethic.

The University of Houston, located in the heart of the Tre, has for many years been looked down upon due to the neighborhood it calls home. What’s interesting in this video piece is how many people featured have ties to UH.
