Winter Street Studios Fire
On Tuesday, December 20, 2022 a devastating fire took place at Winter Street Studios, destroying several studios, and damaging countless artworks, equipment, and personal belongings.
This incident has been overwhelming and heartbreaking to our community, and devastating to the tenants at Winter Street Studios. Some of the artists and businesses have suffered severe financial loss and have found themselves without a source of income for the time being.
As we work to rebuild and recover from this tragic fire, we are grateful that our community has met the challenges of this incident with heart, hope, and care for one another.
In partnership with Fresh Arts and Houston Arts Alliance, we are hosting a fundraiser on Saturday, January 21st at the Silver Street Studios Warehouse from 11am-3pm. Proceeds from the art sales will go to the Houston Arts Alliance Emergency Relief Fund which will provide stipends to the artists affected by the Winter Street Studio fire.
