NEW THIS SEASON!

URBAN ART TOUR
This new series of tours will look at public art, architecture, place making and urban planning in Houston. Each new tour will focus on a small walkable section of Houston. Tours will take place on Thursday evenings 5:30 - 7:30, between happy hour and dinner. The series will kick-off with Downtown Part 1 on Thursday April 3. Artists featured on this tour include Mel Chin, Paul Kittleson, Louise Nevelson, Claes Oldenburg and Dean Ruck.

ROCK, BUILDING, STONES - DOWNTOWN TOUR
This architectural and geological walking tour of downtown goes beyond the typical architectural focus to include the provenance and geology of the buildings' materials. These sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks have come from all over the world and now call Houston home. The tour is inspired by similar walks in Europe and adapted from the Houston Geological Society’s 1995 tour, Houston Building Stones. The tour will debut on Saturday April 5.
