Houston Art Scene Fall 201710.02.2017

Houston is so misunderstood… As Anthony Bourdain says “It is a Wonderland of Strange and Diverse.” It is filled with all kinds of cultures and amazing creative outlets such as: art festivals, street art and museum exhibits. In fact there are so many options that we are going to try to break them down for you every season. Below is our list of some up and coming options you shouldn’t miss!

8th Wonder Beer Garden
Our friends at 8th Wonder Brewery are hosting the David Adickes’ larger than life Beatles Statues. Go have a drink while the weather is cool with the 36 ft. statues of Ringo, John, George and Paul. (Huge plus, you can bring your kiddos!)

Discovery Green
Walking around discovery green, we stumbled across the most beautiful vibrant cloth sculptures. Upon immediate Google research, we discovered it is called The Arcade Series by Sunny Sliger and Marianne Newsom. These two Texas artists created a multiple piece series featuring colorful streamers made from cloth, tablecloths and other mediums. It is utterly enchanting to watch move in the wind (it also makes for the perfect selfie!)
