Event description

Description

Join us for a fun and engaging creative experience where you become the artist for a day. No experience is necessary.

We are honoring the legacy of the four founders of Emancipation Park with a series of four mosaic sculptures anchored at each corner of the park. You will have an opportunity to work alongside artist, Reginald C. Adams and his team of professional artists to help co-create part of the mosaic sculpture.

In 1872 Richard Allen, Richard Brock, Jack Yates, and Elias Dibble together bought 4 acres (1.6 ha) of parkland with $800 ($16731.11 in 2013 inflation-adjusted dollars). The men, led by Yates, were members of the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church and the Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church. They did this to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States.

Emancipation Park and Emancipation Community Center are located at 3018 Emancipation Ave in the Third Ward area of Houston. It is the oldest park in Houston, and the oldest in Texas.

Participants must be at least 14 years old.

Come through rain or shine, we will be working indoors.

Light refreshments will be provided.
