Thought-Provokers: South 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 in and around South Loop that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

The saying is true, “If you don’t think photos are important, wait until they are all you have left.” This is especially true in Houston where during hurricane evacuations, the box of family photos is among the first things to be packed. Read more>>
