Newsflash: I love art. CJ loves art. Wayne loves art. If we didn’t, god help us run this blog. I’d like to think that everyone loves art to some capacity. It’s got to be a very human trait to appreciate aesthetics and be emotionally affected just by how things look. Luckily, we live in Houston where you can literally find something lovely on any given street corner at some point. (that was not a joke about prostitutes)
I first heard about HTX Free Art Friday on Instagram (@HTXFAF) I was just randomly browsing graffiti pages on a Friday afternoon when I noticed alot of these guys were leaving finished pieces around and posting clues for art collectors to go find them. I had thought it was a one time thing, but after following enoguh guys I realized it was a semi-organized but very scheduled event. It’s been as far as the outskirts of the loop and as near as behind a stop sign on a street I work on (though I still didn’t get to that one first).
