Thought-Provokers: Sugar Land

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 Sugar Land that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

At a young age I knew I loved art and wanted to be an artist. I grew up in a small town in Texas that didn’t have much artwork so the things I drew and painted were things that were around me.
