Holman St. will shut down tonight for the kickoff party for the boxy structure at 3400 Main St., the new home of art umbrella organization Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston. The building began hosting performances in October as construction wrapped up on the facility. Parking will be available during the Grand Opening Weekend celebrations at the Mid-Main parking garage, which began hosting artists back in October as well.
MATCH has so far collected at least 50 small art groups to use the building (designed by Lake|Flato and Studio Red). Along with 3,000 sq.ft. of gallery space, 60 offices, and 3 rehearsal studios, the facilities include 3 black box theaters (and 1 white one).
