Hi Carrie and crew!
Well done 🙂
Oh we appreciate that so much, Sheri!!! A labor of love.
Always love seeing what you gals are up to around our city and do appreciate you sharing some of the spots that we can’t find on our own! Thanks ladies! Will be sure to share if we happen upon something you didn’t already see…..although I seriously doubt I will beat you ladies to a fabulous wall! ha!
YES!YES!MORE! Stunning work, brilliant minds…when so much of the world is oppressed in the darkness….THIS represents such the simple kind of joy that reveals beauty and light.
Cheesy, maybe! But TRUE? ☺️

Oh I’m so glad you like! Thanks so much.
This is such a wonderfully curated journey through Houston — thank you! I cannot wait to visit my next wall!
P.S. I love doing fountain, sculpture, and bridge journeys, too! Perhaps those are in your future!
I love those ideas, Allison! Thanks so much for stopping by. Made my day to see your name pop up. 🙂
And that’s not all of them, there are so many more and don’t forget the electric boxes all over town, the mini murals…all throughout the Heights and Montrose.
Exactly, Sam! This is certainly not exhaustive, but hopefully the most comprehensive round up out there. We just want people to enjoy all the art.
If you have some specific ideas of more to add, always feel free to email us! hello at wearwherewell dot com.
Conclusion: probably the best city in Texas…
Ha. I totally agree with your logic. 🙂
This is so awesome!!! Thank you for sharing!!!!!
Oh I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Susan! We are just so appreciative of all the public art we have in Houston.

This is amazing, thank you for sharing!! I’m from Houston and will be visiting my parents this weekend. I hope to see some of these murals!
Thanks for this guide! You should check out Smither Park at the Orange Show if you haven’t already….some very cool mosaic walls.
Thanks for this list. Can’t wait to do blog shoots at these cool places.
It should be noted that Discovery Green requires a permit to shoot.
Great point. Thanks for noting that, Ron. I’ll add that to the text.

OMG this guide is amazing. Thank you so much for sharing!! As a Houston blogger that isn’t originally from Houston it’s a bit intimidating to drive around looking for murals to shoot with. This is wonderfully done.

Oh good! Stay tuned, as we will posting a major update to this article next week.
I am visiting Houston this weekend and just wanted to let others know that the Sugar + Cloth wall and the American Queen mural have both been painted over. I wanted to see both so went to the different locations and they’re gone 🙁
Yes, sadly, that is so. Thanks for the comment.
Actually, we will have a major mural guide update coming this week with lots of updates on existing murals plus the addition of lots of new murals!
Oh okay, thank you so much! I’ll keep a look out for the updated post!
Wow this mural guide is seriously amazing! If I’m ever in Houston, I’ll definitely use it!

Oh wonderfully! So glad to hear that.
Great site. Just had a quick read.
So awesome! Need to go check it out. I tend to forget about the murals even though I live here, but sometimes there are the groups that go around on Sundays and take photos just in random points of interest. This might be one that I suggest.
Thank you so much, Cindy! So glad you liked this. Certainly, this will be a great for a Sunday afternoon. Also, we’ll be launching a one-page printable PDF soon – in case you’d like to print this for yourself or for clients to go explore the city!

Oh wonderful! So happy to hear this. Be sure to share your Houston mural adventures with us. Let us know if we can be of any further help.
