This year, Art Colony Association, Inc. will celebrate 45 years of fine art as it spotlights more than 350 artists during its annual Bayou City Art Festival Memorial Park on April 29 - May 1. With an adoration of animals and spunky, colorful paintings, April Murphy, a local Houstonian, will serve as the featured artist. Festival patrons will enjoy a vibrant walk through Memorial Park as they take in the sights of artwork from 19 different disciplines and enjoy an array of delicious, local foods.
There is no public parking at Memorial Park, however, a shuttle service will be provided to patrons from the conveniently located Northwest Mall located at 9500 Hempstead Highway. Shuttle passes are on sale now for just $3 for a round-trip ride on air-conditioned luxury buses.
