If you love art exhibitions and festivals, food & music, come out on October 13-14th from 10am to 6pm for this fun and interactive outdoor fine art festival in downtown Houston! Everyone (all ages) are welcome and it's a perfect time to enjoy the weekend with your family and friends. It's also encouraged to get your children dressed up in creative Halloween costumes. There will be a costume contest held on Sunday at 2 pm in the Children's Creative Zone.
Did you know Bayou City Art Festival is one of the top 10 outdoor fine art festivals in US? This event gathers more than 20,000 people into the iconic skyline of downtown Houston where you get the opportunity to meet with exhibiting artists, enjoy food, beverages & music entertainment. It will showcase the work of 300 artists from around the world, representing 19 different art disciplines.
Bayou City Art Festival will be benefiting a portion to their nonprofit partners: A Cause to Give us Paws, Fresh Arts, Houston Museum of Fine Arts, Recipe for Success Foundation, The Arc of Greater Houston, and The University of Houston – Clear Lake Art Gallery. Over the past 47 years, the Art Colony Association, producers of Bayou City Art Festival Downtown in the fall and Bayou City Art Festival Memorial Park in the spring, has raised $3.6 million for Houston area charities.
This year's featured artist, Chris Vance, is a mixed media 2D artist from Bondurant, Iowa. His art is mainly influenced by graffiti and skateboard graphics and you can find a lof of his wall arts throughout the metro Des Moines area. Art is his medium of expression and Vance refers to art as his personal diary. Vance says, "Evolution in the paintings shows how small ideas turned into big ideas and those ideas back from big to small. The smallest things in life strike ideas that fuel my work in progression."
Below photos are taken from Chris Vance's FB page. I chose few of my favorites but feel free to click each of the photos to head on over to the actual art with descriptions. If you like his artwork, make sure to check him out at this upcoming bayou art festival in Houston! I love the mix of colors and how some of them makes me curious what each characters are thinking and some are relaxing just by looking at it. What do you think?

It's always great to participate in a fun event where you can be supportive of one another. Going to art festivals, small exhibits, or even museums has always been an activity where I can relax. It's mesmerizing and the way you can express your feelings, emotion or mood creatively in different forms is brilliant.
Bayou City Art Festival Houston will be located in several nearby areas consisting of downtown Houston surrounding city hall, Hermann square, Houston public library, Sam Houston Park, and adjacent streets. The address is 901 Bagby St., Houston, Texas 77002.
