With over 800 entries, the map aims to document every mural in the city as well as giving information about the artists behind them. It will also be continuously updated with new murals through an online submission portal on the map’s website.
“This is the perfect time to discover the diversity of Houston’s creative community and the growing number of murals and Mini Murals, city-wide,” said Theresa Escobedo of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs. “Even better is that anyone can use this new digital map from the safety of home.”
If planning to view any murals in person, the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs and Houston Arts Alliance encourage residents to wear masks and practice social distancing.
The map was published July 15 and funded by a grant secured by the Houston Arts Alliance. The map was a project of UP Art Studio, created with web developer Alex Barber.
