Houston First presents the city’s Third Annual Houston Urban Experience (HUE) Mural Festival, celebrating Houston’s diverse arts community. The festival takes place November 18-25, 2017. Murals will be located throughout Houston’s EADO, East End and areas of Downtown.
This year we present HUE Mural Festival during HOUSTON ART WEEK.
The festival will feature artists from around the world, transforming Houston’s cityscape from concrete to color.
Artists will have approximately 190 hours to create their designs using various forms of tools, techniques, and styles of mural art including graffiti, muralism, paintbrush work, airbrush, roller brush, wheat paste, and stencil.
HUE attendees are encouraged to experience the art-in-progress through either daily guided or self-guided tours, utilizing the printed map or mural tours.
Throughout the festival, visitors can also enjoy artist vendors, live demos, and tastes of our Houston’s finest posted up at the mural locations.
