Houston Center for Urban and Street Arts (HCUSA)
Houston is a phenomenal center for modern and fine arts. Hidden in the urban sprawl, however, are many forms of under-represented arts, including industrial, visionary and traditional arts, along with the home engineering of custom cars and bikes. Increasingly, it is a volitile setting for street arts, where education, appreciation and opportunity are needed.
The Kingspoint area of southeast Houston is a growing center for urban and street art activity, including murals and graffiti, in prominent gatherings, like the International Meeting of Styles from Weisbaden, Germany. The potential inclusion of youth programs and academic centers, like the emerging field of visual anthropology, make this a critical location for an active arts and community center. Architectural plans have been developed for the site, though other opportunities to build in the region exist.
