Art in Parks - Artist

Art In Parks is a multi-platform guide to outdoor art in the Houston Parks and Recreation Department (HPARD) system. Available as a publication, by cell phone, or on the web, Art In Parks offers information on 91 pieces of municipal art located in 24 parks across the city.

The Art In Parks collection has been divided into three tour guides to compliment the visitor's municipal art experience within Houston parks. The guides include: Art In Parks: Sam Houston/Buffalo Bayou Parks, Art in Parks: Hermann Park, and Art In Parks: Greater Houston Area. All three brochures are available at HPARD Community Centers and the City of Houston Visitor's Center and are available for download on this site. Download your Art In Parks brochure today:

Please note that renovation projects in Hermann Park have caused some of the artwork to be removed for storage and conservation. All artworks will be returned to locations in the park upon completion of construction in late 2014.

Art In Parks is funded by a grant from the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.


In 1999, the City of Houston established an ordinance mandating that 1.75% of qualified Capital Improvement Project monies be set aside for civic art. The Houston Arts Alliance (HAA) was formed through the merger of the Cultural Arts Council Houston/Harris County, the Municipal Art Commission, & the Civic Art Committee. HAA serves as a unified entity to fund, advocate, preserve, & promote the arts in the Houston & Harris County region.

Art In Parks is made possible through a generous grant from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.
