Yay! more performance artists being born in Houston!!!
Performance: New Work by HSPVA
Visual art students from Houston's High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA) will present original performance pieces in conjunction with Perspectives 174: Re: Generation. HSPVA evolved in 1971 from a realization that gifted young artists need highly specialized and rigorous training in the arts to be prepared for the intense competition they will meet in colleges, conservatories, and the professional arts world. The creation of HSPVA represented the first attempt by any public high school in the nation to correlate an academic program with concentrated training in the arts. Ultimately HSPVA became the pilot program for today's magnet school concept.
