What is Access the Arts?
Access the Arts is an initiative of Lone Star Family Health Center meant to make the foyer of its Conroe Clinic a community space by featuring the work of local artists and to provide ‘access’ to art work by placing it in a local, accessible setting. Many members of the community, including Lone Star’s own faculty and staff and its patients, don’t often have the opportunity to visit museums and galleries, nor to interact with the artists who live within our own community. Work, school, family and transportation keep us all away from the arts. It is our hope that by featuring displays of artwork in our Conroe facility, and installing some of these pieces permanently in our other clinics, we can bring art directly to our 180 plus employees and the 250 patients who visit our facilities daily.
Access the Arts will begin with displaying photography and canvas prints and grow to include a variety of mediums including sculpture and the performing arts, bringing art directly to the community.
All exhibits will be free and open to the public. Our Conroe lobby is open Monday through Friday from 8am until 9pm and Saturdays from 9am to 1pm. We hope you will visit us regularly to see the rotating exhibits.
“Health Centers are created with the community in mind, so we hope to utilize the work of local artists to make our clinic into a space people come to outside of medical visits. This is the community’s space.” – David Moore, Director of Business Development
Student Arts Show
August 1st – September 15th
This exhibit is a back-to-school celebration meant to remind all of us how important the students of our community are. Art work from our own staff members’ children and art assembled with the help of Conroe ISD art teachers will be combined to showcase some of the future artists in our community.
