Hidden Gems of Houston

Art Blocks Houston – Public Art Near Houston’s Rail

By  | 

We’re always on the look out for photo opportunities. One of our favorite places to snap photos of our little one is conveniently located in the heart of Downtown. If you’ve been downtown you’ve probably seen Art Blocks.  This fun public art project includes a series of temporary art installations.  Our very favorite photo spot within the art project is called Color Jam Houston.

Another fun spot to snap photos within the public art project is Main Street Marquee. As of this writing this mural is no longer displayed, but there’s another mural to check out!

And while this spot isn’t temporary, we always stop at Floyd Newsum’s Planter and Stems. For our daughter, it’s just as entertaining as a playground.

While you’re in the neighborhood, you should check out Patrick Renner’s Trumpet Flower.  During the day, tables are set up so that people can enjoy lunch under the Trumpet Flower.
