Bihl Haus Arts

Bihl Haus Arts, founded in 2005, presents innovative, interdisciplinary programming featuring the work of contemporary visual, literary, and performing artists in the intimate setting of the historic George Bihl house.  Located on the grounds of Primrose at Monticello Park Senior Apartments, Bihl Haus Arts is the only professional contemporary art gallery on the premises of 100% affordable senior housing in the U.S.  Our mission—Creating Community through the Arts—is founded on the belief that each person, when given a chance, will achieve significant personal, social and cultural growth through the arts.  In support of it mission, Bihl Haus developed the GO! Arts Program in 2007, which provides art and creative writing class taught by professional artists-teachers to seniors—the “Goldens”—who either reside at Primrose or participate at the Alicia Treviño López and the Elvira Cisneros Senior Centers.  Website:

Jane Madrigal

Laura Rios performs a traditional Matachin song at the closing of Jane Madrigal's exhibit, Journey to the Underworld and Other Forbidden Places before the End of Time, which was on display at Bihl Haus Arts from November 2012 through January 2013.

The installation featured a temple to Coyolxauhqui, goddess of the moon, and artworks dedicated to other indigenous feminine deities revered before the conquest.  These works honor the ancient belief that held sacred the feminine principle and equated it with spiritual power and reverence.
