The Arts

DPWPR has profoundly influenced Houston’s cultural community, often garnering national coverage as it represents distinguished visual and performance organizations, including the Houston Symphony; Houston Grand Opera; Alley Theatre; Museum of Fine Arts Houston (MFAH); ACE Theatrical Group; Houston Arts Alliance; Houston Fine Art Fair; and FotoFest.  For more than a decade, DPWPR has served as agency of record for MFAH, creating compelling promotions and securing media, corporate and community partnerships that offer value-added support for blockbuster exhibitions. Notable examples include the Starbucks Mixed Media Series at MFAH, delivering a broad, new generation of patrons to the museum; headlining internationally renowned gunpowder artist Cai Guo-Qiang as he created his first permanent, site-specific installation in a U.S. museum; and securing the international energy conglomerate Apache Corporation as exclusive local sponsor for the famed King Tut exhibit. DPWPR’s longstanding relationship with MFAH began with the agency’s widely successful launch of the Audrey Jones Beck Building, a winning endeavor repeated with the launch of the museum’s Lora Jean Kilroy Visitor and Education Center at Bayou Bend.  As agency of record for the Houston Symphony, DPWPR annually raises public awareness and appreciation for each new season and continually positions and profiles Symphony leadership.  DPWPR created high anticipation through nationwide publicity for the Houston Symphony’s world premiere of The Planets – An HD Odyssey, a multi-media masterpiece.  For ACE Theatrical Group, DPWPR provides ongoing national public relations support - and a shared commitment to preserve historic treasures such as New Orleans’ Saenger Theatre and Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre.
