Civic Art + Design

Creating public spaces for civic and cultural use requires artists, designers, architects and the community to collaborate. By actively fostering these partnerships, both public and private, Civic Art + Design initiates, manages and maintains civic artworks throughout Houston. It serves a vital role as catalyst for change that generates a culturally relevant and rich environment for residents and visitors alike.

Grants

Houston Arts Alliance provides grants annually to over 220 arts and cultural organizations and artists through a competitive grant allocation process.
