Art in the Park Art Show

Join us in March and April of 2014 for a 6th year of public art in the park. Stroll the park trails, enjoy the spring wildflowers, and appreciate art in a natural setting. Every spring we invite Houston-based artists from Municipal Dirt to install art pieces in Russ Pitman Park. Artists will create and install site specific sculptures and other art specifically for this park and this show. The original art will only be up for 6 weeks, so come and see this gorgeous marriage of art and nature while you can! The installation will be open to the public during regular park hours.
