Join us for a neighborhood fiesta at Knapp Chevrolet on March 16th to meet our fabulous art car designer, Kearin Cook. Tap into the art car excitement with us by sharing your own unique art car design, vote on the perfect name for our Art Car, and sprinkle your own pizzazz onto the vehicle (for an encouraged $10 donation). Let’s roll out the creativity carpet as we celebrate 10 years of Arts District Houston! Family-friendly.

April 2024 marks the 10th anniversary of the state designation of Arts District Houston as a cultural arts district by the Texas Commission on the Arts. To commemorate this milestone, Arts District Houston and Fresh Arts are thrilled to announce the launch of our very first Art Car project! Over the past decade, Arts District Houston has played a pivotal role in nurturing the city’s artistic spirit and connecting artists with opportunities, shaping Houston’s identity as a vibrant center for the arts.
