Each year, the acclaimed Core Program at the Glassell School of Art awards residencies to artists and critical writers, culminating in the spring with an exhibition and yearbook. The 2016 Core Exhibition is on display in the Audrey Jones Beck Building at the MFAH while the new facility for the Glassell School of Art, designed by Steven Holl Architects, is under construction.
