This capital of the great state of Texas is not only the fourth largest city in the United States, but is also the second lowest in cost of living among big cities. With so many people able to enjoy an affordable lifestyle, it is no wonder Houstonites eat out more than residents in any other city; or that they enjoy innumerable events put on by the more than five hundred cultural, visual, and performing arts organizations in the city; or even that the "Bayou City's" theatre district is second only to New York! With so much to do and the means to do it, any art student planning on attending school in Houston should also plan for a busy calendar and a good pair of shoes. The calendar of events will include things like Art on the Avenue, Art Houston, FotoFest, Houston Art Crawl, Gallery Colquitt, and the nationally recognized Bayou City Arts Festival, a biannual event that exhibits the juried work of over three hundred artists. Additionally, any fans of Impressionism should not miss the Museum of Fine Art or, if you prefer surrealism, the Mencil Collection is certainly a must-see. And the list goes on: the Contemporary Museum of Art, The Center for Contemporary Craft, the Houston Center for Photography, and the Museum of Printing History are all part of the expansive Houston art scene. For more alternative mediums, Diverse Works, the Orange Show Center for Visionary Arts, and the Lawndale Art Center all offer experimental, cutting-edge art exhibits and spaces. Most notably, the Project Row House is a nationally recoginzed program for its efforts in urban development. Through this program, row homes are taken over by seven different artists biannually and the artists transform the homes through exhibitions of installation and performing arts. Furthermore, Buffalo Bayou Art Park works to promote the development and installation of sculpture art in public places- another example of the great presence of art in and around the city. With so much to do and see, any art student will find a true challenge, not in opportunity, but in time management.
