Eye on Houston: High School Documentary Photography (2014) January 11–April 20, 2014
An annual collaboration between the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and area high schools, Eye on Houston: High School Documentary Photography celebrates Houston’s diverse neighborhoods.
This year, students from three schools—Bellaire High School, César E. Chávez High School, and Jack Yates High School—recorded daily life in their communities. The talented teens also captured personal moments that reflect their sense of self, their future, and their imminent transition into adulthood.
Formerly known as Eye on Third Ward, the program was founded in 1995 with Yates High School to encourage students to hone their technological skills and powers of observation.
The "Eye on Houston: High School Documentary Photography" exhibition receives generous funding from the CFP Foundation, Texas Commission on the Arts, and the Junior League of Houston, Inc.
All education programs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, receive endowment income from funds provided by Caroline Wiess Law; The National Endowment for the Humanities; the William Randolph Hearst Foundation; the Fondren Foundation; BMC Software, Inc.; the Wallace Foundation; the Louise Jarrett Moran Bequest; the Neal Myers and Ken Black Children’s Art Fund; the Favrot Fund; and Gifts in honor of Beth Schneider.
