Public art surprises

Have you seen the Lawndale Art Center’s Billboard Series yet? I think it’s a really neat idea – basically an alternative for showing local/Texan art in a ‘car-defined city’ while their gallery is being re-modeled.

I’m always interested in the various public art pieces around town. Sometimes I get surprised when driving down a bit of road I’m constantly on – ‘why hello there, bright pink shiny thing swaying in the breeze that I have never in my life seen in that random parking lot’.

    Be sure to visit Lawndale’s website for a peek at the three billboards that the good ol’ billboard company CENSORED, too!

    One of the billboard artists is a Houston resident. I wrote an article about him back in August if anyone wants to check it out.

    I’ve enjoyed reading your comments on public art in Houston.
