Back in 1917, New York politician and philanthropist John Emory Andrus (1841-1934) launched the Surdna Foundation as a means to foster “sustainable communities in the United States—communities guided by principles of social justice and distinguished by healthy environments, strong local economies, and thriving cultures.” Nearly a century later, the former congressman’s organization is still on a mission to “dismantle the structural barriers that limit opportunity” by investing in initiatives like the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center’s new Artist Lab—a two-year program under the guidance of Acción Texas. Thanks to input from a group of creative advisors that includes curators from New York’s Museo del Barrio, New Mexico’s National Hispanic Cultural Center and Mexico City’s Museo Tamayo, Artist Lab’s first batch of participants (Fernando Andrade, Kim Bishop, Nicole Geary, Daniela Riojas and Luis Valderas) will be “infusing their work with new ideas and refining their concept and strategies.” Friday’s opening reception at Museo Guadalupe reflects the inaugural generation’s latest developments. Free, 6-9pm, Museo Guadalupe, 723 S Brazos, (210) 271-3151, guadalupeculturalarts.org. —Bryan Rindfuss
