“Third Ward TX tells the story of Project Row Houses – a unique creative venture started when a group of African-American artists clean up around a row of condemned shotgun houses and hold a “Drive By” exhibition of paintings on the fronts of the abandoned homes. Eventually, they purchase 22 houses on two blocks, become home to cutting-edge public art and a home-grown challenge to traditional notions of community development. As 93-year old resident Miss Earnestine Courtney says in the film “If you want to do something for real…you’ll clean up this place and get these junkies outta’ here.” Told in their own words, this moving story introduces unforgettable people from the Third Ward: artists, young mothers, children and long-time residents.”
