PUBLIC ART: A COMMUNITY TREASURE 3.

Statues, Murals, Memorials. Whatever the medium, public art is free and accessible to everyone.

3. Public art, in all its glorious forms, is a community treasure that enhances our experience of a place and our quality of life. It inspires a sense of pride and community and adds beauty to the environment. Public art reaches audiences outside museums and theaters and offers us a way to participate in the planning, design and creation of communal space. It creates a means of communicating ideas and sharing experiences in a changing, culturally diverse world. Public art reveals its meaning over time, rewarding repeated visits. It has the distinct ability to commemorate, memorialize and celebrate. It transports us, if only momentarily, out of our daily routine. Public art is for everyone and it is free.

For a city its size, Houston for years was very lean on public art. This all began to change when a percent-for-art program was established. In 1999, the City of Houston founded an ordinance mandating that 1.75 percent of qualified Capital Improvement Project monies be set aside for civic art. Soon after, the Houston Arts Alliance (HAA) was officially formed through the merger of the Cultural Arts Council Houston/ Harris County, the Municipal Art Commission and the Civic Art Committee. The HAA now serves as a unified entity that will fund, advocate, preserve and promote the arts in the Houston and Harris County regions. For more on the HAA, see our interview with Jonathon Glus, president and CEO of the HAA, on the inside back cover. Today, Houston boasts a thriving public art scene supported by many proud Houstonians. More than 500 public works of art span more than 20 zip codes, and the range of our artworks is diverse. From some of the city’s creative mainstays to others off its beaten path, here we touch on a few examples of Houston public art:

TEMPORARY ART Temporary artworks, which are not part of the 500-plus works in the City of Houston Art Collection, have become more numerous in recent years. Although temporary, these pieces create lasting memories, such as the Funnel Tunnel, Blue Trees and the True North exhibit that was on Heights Boulevard. Note: The public art included in this article is only a sampling of Houston’s public art (art that is unexpected or that one simply comes upon when walking or driving). It does not include the art of our renowned museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Menil Collection, and Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.

Houston is home to numerous murals. Daniel Anguilu is one of our most celebrated muralists. His mural, Chavez no murió, is located in EaDo on St. Emanuel Street at Bell Street.

Memorable and oh-so-colorful as well, yarn bombing has successfully woven its way into an annual event here in Houston. The start of this art movement has been attributed to Magda Sayeg, 37 and from Houston, who says she first got the idea in 2005 when she covered the door handle of her boutique with a custom-made “cozy”. The movement grew from simple cozies to the innovation of the “stitched story.” Yarn bomb installations are now found all over the world. A good deal of temporary art is planned in order to dress up Houston for the 2017 Super Bowl LI. Art Blocks Houston is a series of permanent and temporary art installations in the Main Street Square area that include Color Jam by Jessica Stockholder, Trumpet Flower by Patrick Renner, artist collective YesYesNo and a marquee that will rotate works by Armando Castelan, Jamal Cyrus, Giovanni Valderas and Nataliya Scheib. The George R. Brown Convention Center is undergoing a dramatic renovation and will feature two new monumental artworks. O’Connell+Creative Machine’s Wings Over Water will be installed outside, above the Fountain of the Americas. Ed Wilson’s hanging assemblage of perforated stainless steel birds and clouds will be installed inside and visible through the center’s glass wall.

PERMANENT PILLARS In addition to temporary installations, Houston shines with a wide range of permanent installations which speak to the many faces of the city. In 2013, smithsonian.com featured an article titled “The Amazing Public Art Deep in the Heart of Texas” which announced, “Houston has a healthy allowance for beautifying its streets and parks.” The article, which was referring to the city’s percent-for-art program, cited the public artworks featured on the facing page as the city’s creative mainstays.

THE ART OF HIGHER LEARNING Rice University and the University of Houston have outstanding public art collections, collections which the two institutions of higher learning hope will enlighten and further educate the city. Rice has a website dedicated to its public art (publicart.rice.edu) that features the following welcome: “Public art expands our capacity to perceive, understand and represent the world. Rice Public Art seeks to generate encounters with art that advance the culture of inquiry that characterizes our university. By incorporating site-specific works into our campus landscape and interior spaces, the program aims to challenge and inspire the community to imagine its work and lives from unconventional and potentially transformative perspectives. Rice Public Art works in collaboration with the Shepherd School of Music, the Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts (VADA), the BioScience Research Collaborative (BRC) and the student organization Art Lab, among others, in an effort to broadly integrate our programming into the academic life at Rice University.” A jewel of Rice’s public art is James Turrell’s Twilight Epiphany Skyspace at the Suzanne Deal Booth Centennial Pavilion. For reservations, visit www.skyspace.rice.edu. As early as September 6, 1966, the University of Houston established a policy which dedicated one percent of the construction costs of all future building projects to the acquisition of works of art. UH was undergoing an unprecedented building boom and believed a public art program would greatly enhance the campus as well as the prestige of the university. The university was the first state institution to establish a percent-for-art program and currently has one of the largest and most impressive university art collections in the country, which includes more than 500 works of art. The collection contains works by local, regional, national and international artists, across all forms of media and style. Visit www.uh.edu/uh-collection.

THE PARK-ART EXPERIENCE Houston parks feature notable and varied Luther King, Jr. bust in Bricker Park and Memorial in Buffalo Bayou Park

artworks — from the Christopher Columbus the Atropos Key in Hermann and the Big Bubble

statue in Bell Park, the Martin Park to the Police Officer in Buffalo Bayou beneath the Preston Street bridge. A detailed guide by the Houston Parks and Recreation Department can be found at www.houstontx. gov/parks/artinparks. The multi-platform, interactive guide is divided into three tour guides: Art in Parks: Buffalo Bayou/Sam Houston/Tranquility Parks; Art in Parks: Greater Houston Area; and Art in Parks: Hermann Park.

Discovery Green, a public-private partnership between the City of Houston, the Houston First Corporation and Discovery Green Conservancy (the nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that operates and maintains the park) boasts exceptional permanent art such as Margo Sawyer’s Synchronicity of Color and temporary installations such as Bruce Munro’s Field of Light and David Graeve’s Bubbles. Pictured: Pachikadi and His Flying Friends, 2011, Elaine Bradford, Vinson Branch of the Houston Public Library. Elaine’s color palette for the gaggle of geese (not all are pictured here) was inspired by the Houston Zoo’s tropical bird habitat. The book, Pachikadi and His Flying Friends, is available for check out at the library.

TRANSIT-FRIENDLY ART Metro deserves recognition for its efforts to help create a sense of community through the art installations it commissioned at various stations throughout the city. More than 20 artists participated in the creation of the art installations, which earned Metro the Proud Partner Award in 2013. The Metro Arts In Transit program began in 2006 and has involved dozens of local and national art experts as well as hundreds of community residents to determine the content of the artwork. As a result, the artwork really reflects the character of each neighborhood. For example, at the Fulton/North Central Station, nationally acclaimed artist Dixie Friend Gay researched the type of butterflies native to that neighborhood and then incorporated them into her artwork.

ORANGE BEGINNINGS The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art (OSCVA) has become Houston’s hub of folk art activity with nationally respected programs. The Orange Show site is at the center of these programs, a living example of how individual vision can dramatically enrich community and culture. Jeff McKissack created The Orange Show in honor of his favorite fruit and to illustrate his belief that longevity results from hard work and good nutrition. Working from 1956 until his death in 1980, McKissack used common building materials and found objects to transform an East End lot into an architectural maze of walkways, balconies, arenas and exhibits decorated with mosaics and brightly painted iron figures. When he died, Houston arts patron Marilyn Oshman formed a nonprofit foundation to preserve The Orange Show. In 1982, the restored site opened, and newly hired staff began to integrate The Orange Show into Houston’s cultural life through a wide variety of programs which focus on The Orange Show’s ability to make basic elements of art tangible and accessible. Among the most successful of its programs is Art Car Weekend. In 1984, The Orange Show Foundation commissioned the Fruitmobile (pictured), recognizing that the art car, a medium of self-expression, is a mobile visionary art site. This led to the first annual Houston Art Car Parade which has since grown into Art Car Weekend. Smither Park, a project of the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art in collaboration with renowned architect and designer Dan Phillips, is a work of art in progress — providing a unique opportunity to see artists in action and the evolution of an international artistic destination. The park is a creative urban space that has developed with the help of artists and friends. Phillips worked with Stephanie Smither to design the park in memory of her late husband, John H. Smither. John and Stephanie were longtime supporters and collectors of self-taught art, as well as board members of the OSCVA. Inspired by the OSCVA’s philosophy of promoting and sustaining self-taught art, the park which boasts a mosaic covered memory wall (a portion of which is pictured) serves as a testimony to the vibrancy and creativity of the city of Houston. For more information on the OSCVA and Smither park, visit www.orangeshow.org. OSCVA acquired Houston’s well-known Beer Can House after creator John Milkovisch and his wife passed away. Diligent documentation and planning over the next few years determined a comprehensive plan to restore the site to its former glory.

CELEBRATION OF HISTORY AND CULTURE Rick Lowe, a native of Alabama and 2014 MacArthur “Genius” grant winner, founded Project Row Houses (PRH) in Houston’s northern Third Ward. In 1990, a group of high school students asked Lowe to create solutions to problems instead of creating works that tell the community about issues it is already aware of. Lowe and a coalition of artists purchased a group of 22 shotgun houses (pictured) across two blocks that were built in 1930 and, by the 1990s, were in poor condition. Today, seven row houses serve as installation spaces for visiting artists. The installations are often related to themes connected to the community that surrounds PRH and broader themes of African-American culture. A row next to the art houses is reserved for single mothers. The mission of PRH is to be the catalyst for transforming community through the celebration of art and African-American history and culture. For more information, visit www.projectrowhouses.org.

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION DiverseWorks produces a steady array of stimulating installations, unlikely collaborations and inventive happenings that honor each artist’s vision without constraint. Exhibitions are often comprised of a variety of works across many mediums – drawings, paintings, sculptures, video animations and performance. DiverseWorks and Rice Public Art recently collaborated to present Astrology Orchestra by artist Katie Grinnan at the James Turrell Twilight Epiphany Skyspace. Astrology Orchestra is an ongoing symphonic performance project. Each instrument represents a planetary position and maps the artist’s astrological birth chart as seen from the perspective of each planet. The chart is translated into the strings of handmade instruments that are tuned accordingly. Echoing Turrell’s pyramidal structure, for the live performance in Houston, ancient astrology, which relies solely on planets that can be seen with the naked eye, was referenced. Be it metal, yarn or another medium, Houston’s public art has positioned itself within the framework of the city by way of its parks, universities, transportation system and more. And, fortunately, Houston is truly the better for it.

TEMPORARY ART

1. Urban Yarnage is an ad hoc group of knitters and crocheters in Houston that designs and develops fiber street art projects. Yarn bombing is now a national and international art movement that encompasses projects that range in scale from very small to extremely large. Pictured is the 2015 yarn bomb installation on Buffalo Bayou Park. Photo courtesy of Urban Yarnage. www.urbanyarnage.com 2. Inversion was a 2005 artwork by Dan Havel and Dean Ruck of Houston Alternative Art. They altered two buildings owned by the Art League of Houston on the corner of Montrose Boulevard and Willard Street. The exterior skins of the houses were peeled off and used to create a large vortex that funneled into the small central hallway connecting the two buildings. Inversion became one of Houston’s most well-known, temporary sculputres. Photo by Nick Douglas 3.

ART BLOCKS

Art Blocks is a new public art initiative. From lessons learned about public art’s capacity to awaken change in areas that have not yet realized their full potential, Art Blocks strives to enliven Main Street Square. This inaugural project by the Downtown District Public Art Committee, supported by the professional services of the Weingarten Art Group, includes a series of site-specific installations by internationally-lauded artists and designers. Pop up performances, interactive experiences and community festivals will add to a schedule of events. For detailed information about each installation, visit www.artblockshouston.org. 4.

MARKET SQUARE PARK The Houston Downtown Management District reopened Market Square Park to the public on August 30, 2010. The philosophy of the new Market Square Park design is built upon three pillars: interpretation of the space’s history; creation of an active, urban green space; and conservation and exhibition of artwork. Anchoring the space is a central lawn placed where the old 19th-century City Hall used to stand in order to evoke a sense of history. A small outdoor restaurant, Niko Niko’s, is beside it with outdoor seating, a trellis providing shade, and a dual plaza/performance area. 7.

Two sculptures in Market Square Park were cited by smithsonian.com as creative mainstays of Houston — ­ Points of View by James Surls and the Ceramic Tile Benches by Malou Flato. Much of Market Square Park’s art collection was featured in the park’s previous design coordinated by DiverseWorks in 1991, with the unified message of embracing our city’s history. These works by Richard Turner, Paul Hester, James Surls and Malou Flato are preserved or reconfigured in the current design. Newly commissioned artwork includes sculptures by Ketria Bastian Scott and Sharon Connally Ammann in Lauren’s Garden and James Phillips’ carved pup near the dog run. Visit www. marketsquarepark.com. 8. Lauren’s Garden, a memorial to those killed on September 11, 2001. Ketria Scott’s cast-bronze elements are made up of two vine-like tendrils that seem to grow from the fountain. The entire piece is inlaid into the granite disk in front of the fountain.

HOUSTONIANS WHO MATTER JONATHON GLUS As President and CEO of the Houston Arts Alliance, Jonathon Glus has had a significant hand in the amazing increase in Houston’s public art. In an interview with John A. Daugherty, Jr., Glus explains public art in Houston and the role of the HAA. JD: What is Houston Arts Alliance’s role in public art in Houston? JG: HAA is responsible for acquisition of all new artworks, review of all donations of artworks and collection management, which means cataloging, education and conservation. JD: How are artworks commissioned? JG: Funds that are generated by a particular city department tend to have to remain in that department. HAA staff work closely with leadership in each department to determine the best use of the funds, usually based on the most visible and accessible facility. After a site is determined, it is usually a two-step process. We invite appropriate artists to submit credentials or a simple concept, and a short list of those artists are invited to create a full proposal, from which a winning proposal is selected through a rigorous panel and committee review process. We invite a panel of respected arts professionals, who in turn make preliminary recommendations based on artist quality. HAA’s civic art committee reviews the panel recommendation for ability to deliver the project as promised, and the HAA board approves based on a draft contract. Finally, the city department accepts the recommendations of HAA, and after installation of the artwork, City Council accepts the artwork into the city collection. It may sound like a complex process, and it is. However, this allows for the very best quality artwork to be identified by arts professionals, while the remaining steps ensure that the use of public funds are appropriate, transparent, and the project is deliverable.

Jonathon Glus visits Jaume Plensa’s Tolerance at Harmony Walk in Buffalo Bayou Park at Allen Parkway and Studemont. (Tolerance, 2011, stainless steel and stone. Funding source: Private donors)

JD: What is the process of installation of new works? JG: This varies tremendously, based on the artwork. Installation may be as simple as hanging a painting on a wall, and as complex as beginning at the construction of the facility, where ceiling joists, flooring or power may have to be strengthened or enhanced for eventual installation. A large piece, such as a large flooring design or wall mosaic, may take weeks to install.

JD: What is your personal role in public art in Houston? JG: I really take a backseat role. Our program is very much driven by our civic art director, Sara Kellner, whose role is very much a combination of senior curator and director of project management, and her team. Together, we work closely with our civic art committee, comprised of leading art patrons, and successful artists, and of course, our many partners at City Hall. JD: Do you have any personal favorites in terms of public art? JG: So many wonderful works. Perhaps most recently are the immensely engaging art wraps we are installing on recycling trucks. The colorful and educational trucks roll throughout our entire city, surprising citizens with contemporary designs, of all types. It is a great way to push public art throughout all areas of our far-flung, sprawling city. And, delightfully, they have been so well received, we will be rolling out even more over the coming months.
