Thought-Provokers: North Loop

Houston has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from North Loop that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Art is a form of therapy for me as a child, and to this day it really still is. It allows me to get lost in my own little world and melt any type of stress, anxiety, or depression that I may be experiencing during that time. Read more>>
