You can often find Robert Hodge, featured Contemporary Arts Museum Houston visual artist and talented musician | producer, at our EADO design house working with reclaimed and recycled materials for his mixed media pieces. But art is not his only claim to fame – as executive producer for the art | music | history album Two & 1/2 Years: A Musical Celebration of Juneteenth Robert is the epitome of multi media talent. "Hodge" as he's affectionally known, is one of two artists in residency under our Artist In Nesting program and he will be collaborating with us this year on a textile project along with teaching workshops. Our next project with Hodge, based on his 'Destroy & Rebuild' collection, will be a series of deconstruct | reconstruct up-cycled pieces. Truly a man after our own hearts!
