Eye on Houston: High School Documentary Photography January 12–May 1, 2016
The annual exhibition Eye on Houston: High School Documentary Photography is a collaboration between the Museum and area high schools to document and celebrate the diversity of Houston’s neighborhoods.
Eye on Houston invites students to offer a glimpse into their daily lives, experiences, and personal stories. This year, the 21st annual presentation expands to include a greater number of Houston communities. These neighborhoods are showcased through images by students from Bellaire, Cesar E. Chavez, Jack Yates, Sam Houston, and Westside high schools, along with students from HISD's Through the Lens, a district-wide afterschool program that focuses on photography as a profession. The 67 photographs on view in the exhibition represent the work of 37 junior and senior students.
This 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 the Louise Jarrett Moran Bequest; Caroline Wiess Law; the William Randolph Hearst Foundation; The National Endowment for the Humanities; the Fondren Foundation; BMC Software, Inc.; the Wallace Foundation; the Neal Myers and Ken Black Children’s Art Fund; the Favrot Fund; and Gifts in honor of Beth Schneider.
