Houston’s Newest Public Artwork Going Up On Groundhog Day

by Glasstire January 29, 2016

The upcoming mural’s canvas.

The warehouse that is Spring Street Studios, the artist community in Houston’s First Ward neighborhood, will be the canvas for a new public artwork going up Tuesday, Feb. 2. Local artists Troy Stanley and Aaron Muñoz will create a 70×10 foot wall mural on the outside of the building (which is a refurbished Harris Moving & Storage Building).

The piece, titled Splash, will “wrap” around the building (via HAA) and mimic the art-making processes of the artists who work in building’s 80 studios: “The work will reveal the inner workings of the building while becoming a part of the abstract landscape of its urban surroundings.” The  project is made possible by Houston Arts Alliance and the Brown Foundation.
