El Pasoans Encouraged to join HACEP’s Annual Art Contest

On Friday, the Housing Authority of the City of El Paso, TX (HACEP) officially launched its annual art contest with this year’s theme, Changing the Face of Public Housing.  With its revitalization program, HACEP is leading the nation in redefining public housing.

Changing the Face of Public Housing captures El Paso’s story of transformation and challenges the stigma of affordable housing. This year’s art contest participants will actively take part of this transformation by sharing their version of this narrative through art.

“Part of redefining public housing is effectively sharing our transformation,” HACEP CEO Gerald Cichon said. “The annual art contest gives both our residents and the greater El Paso community an opportunity to be part of this historic transformation.”

The art contest is open to all residents in El Paso County, including students aged 11 years and older. Participants are encouraged to use their imagination and creativity to visually capture this year’s theme in any artistic medium of their choice (e.g. painting, photography, video, sculpture, etc.).  Submissions will be accepted through Tuesday, May 31.

All artwork will be publicly displayed at the El Paso Public Main Library Branch downtown (501 N Oregon St, El Paso, TX) as part of a month-long art gallery exhibition in June.  Winners will be selected by an esteemed panel of El Pasoan judges from different disciplines in the art world and announced at a special reception for all artists, their family and friends later that month.

Award winners will receive a cash prize, a highlight in the local media, displayed at City Hall, featured online and in HACEP’s newsletter that has a distribution of over 20,000.

Known as the 14th largest housing authority in the country and for managing the 2nd largest public housing portfolio in Texas, HACEP became part of the national conversation by launching the nation’s first NetZero, fossil fuel free, LEED Platinum affordable housing community.

HACEP is now paving the path for the country’s largest public housing conversion and rehabilitation effort, also known as the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Program, an initiative of the United States Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Department.

Very much like the Rubik’s cube, the 1970s 3-D puzzle-phenomenon, art contest participants will become part of the HACEP movement that showcases the shifting, shaping and molding of mediums to define the changing face of public housing.
