Art League Houston is excited to present 'This Is Houston,' a unique installation by Houston-based artist Phillip Pyle II at the 2015 TX Contemporary. For this project, the artist will redesign a series of ad posters that the City of Houston published as part of a tourism campaign during the 1970's and 80's. The posters will be wheat pasted along the walls leading up to the fair's entrance.
"Throughout my artistic career, mining imagery and re-imagining it new ways has been my staple" says the artist. "Being born and raised in Houston this project is close to my heart and I am excited to showcase it."
