Looking for venues for our death penalty art show


We are are searching for visual arts venues in Texas cities where we can exhibit our art show "Justice for All?: Artists Reflect on the Death Penalty". We are especially interested in venues in Houston, Dallas and San Antonio. If you know of a gallery, museum or other venue, please contact us at info@deathpenaltyartshow.org or leave a message at 512-302-6715.

The show first ran May 6-22, 2006 in Austin at Gallery Lombardi. There were 54 pieces in the Austin exhibit, selected by three jurors: Annette Carlozzi, senior curator at the Blanton Museum, Lora Reynolds of the Lora Reynolds Gallery in Austin, and Malaquias Montoya, an artist and professor of art at the University of California, Davis.

The exhibit includes paintings, drawings, sculpture, videos and installation art.

The show is online at www.deathpenaltyartshow.org. The online gallery includes not just the works that were selected by the jury, but all of the works that were submitted to the show:
www.deathpenaltyartshow.org/gallery.

You can also see images of the artworks on Flickr.

The show includes audio descriptions from many of the artists that visitors to the exhibition venue can listen to by calling a number on their cell phones. An example of an audio recording is here. Just click on "listen to audio description".

Here is a link to a review of the show from The Austin Chronicle.
