“Rather than having one stamped style I would say that there’s no Houston style, the Houston style would be the variety of things.” –Joe Havel
Sculpture Month Houston is a citywide event that celebrates and showcases sculpture throughout Houston. The campaign is hosted in numerous galleries and venues throughout the city from October 15 through November 19, 2016. It will direct attention to the sculptural work, creative energies and diverse expressions of Houston sculptors. It will join a succession of existing art celebrations such as FotoFest, PrintMatters Houston and Houston Art Fair, adding to Houston’s reputation as an art friendly city.
The last sculpture event was 16 years ago at Sculpture 2000 and with this project we hope to bring a current survey of the sculptural medium to the greater Houston area. We will be showcasing the emergence of a talented generation of young sculptors alongside our important established sculptors in a wide variation of styles, reflecting the diversity of the city of Houston. The first-class collection of public sculpture has encouraged Houston sculptors to create works of great distinction and sophistication.
