Yeah, the old Cleburne Cafeteria building. There used to be an old picture of the building on their site, but I'm not seeing it anymore.

That is the spot you can see from 59. I didn't think they did such a bad job to the building. Slowly but surely this part of midtown is becoming nicer. Plus the development happening on the corner near that that church and those colorful apartments. Midtown is gonna be a nice urban spot.

I remember seeing the image below as proposed "livable centers" in midtown. The art district most likely centers around the proposed IAC. Cleburne cafeteria seems to be outside the colored zones.

got this email--

Kicking off our 30th Anniversary as Houston's most daring multidisciplinary arts center, DiverseWorks is thrilled to announce a new organizational home!

After 20 years in our warehouse space north of downtown, DiverseWorks is relocating this fall to 4102 Fannin Street in the heart of midtown. This move, the third in our history, signals a commitment to midtown as a geographically critical area for the arts in Houston. It also precedes the highly anticipated construction of the Independent Arts Collaborative, of which DiverseWorks is a founding member.

Located at the intersection of Fannin and Cleburne streets, DiverseWorks' new home

was once part of the original Cleburne Cafeteria (1941-1969) and, until recently, housed a small manufacturing facility. At just over 5500 square feet, the facility features a sizeable gallery for exhibitions and a flex space specifically dedicated to public programming, including performances, film screenings, special events, workshops, and other activities.

Our last day in our current location at 1117 E. Freeway is October 31st. Stay tuned for more information regarding our fall programming and a close-down celebratory event!

MOVING SALE!

Friday, August 17, 9 am - 5 pm and Saturday, August 18, 9 am - 12 pm

1117 East Freeway, Houston, 77002

"We wanted to be a part of this," Elizabeth Dunbar, DiverseWorks executive director, tells CultureMap on an impromptu tour of the premises. Dunbar was referring to her neighbors on the other side of the building— the artists who will occupy 21 work spaces in Art Square, where only two vacant spaces remain.
