From 4912 Main Street to 2618 Main

In this Hear Our Houston audio tour and contribution to Unexpected City, Daniel Anguilu, a prolific street artist responsible for some of Houston’s most compelling murals, and Alex Luster, documentary filmmaker of “Stick Em Up,” take us on this tour of art outdoors. Begin at Lawndale Art Center where you’ll see Anguilu’s latest work overtaking one of its walls. From there, both Anguilu and Luster shout out War’Haus at 4715 Main. From there, get the inside scoop on Houston’s street art scene from Luster as you take a light rail trip toward 2618 Main. For the past seven months, Anguilu has been overtaking this former Mental Health and Mental Retardation Center with his art. Walking around this building is like walking around inside the mind of the artist: see the evolutions of form, line, and color as you turn each corner, and imagine the layers of history between each coat of paint.
