About the Titans Foundation
Fort Houston Artisan Support Project
All artwork for the Titans Art Show was collected and curated by Fort Houston Artisan Support Project. Fort Houston is a non-profit, community-based workshop that allows members to come together, and share skills and tools to pursue creative projects. Their membership is open to everyone and is comprised of woodworkers, fabricators, hobbyists, entrepreneurs, artists, craft enthusiasts, and students.
