This publication has been made possible because of chance encounters with like minded people. The movers and shakers of the Houston art scene are our most important contributors. Thanks to all who have contributed and collaborated in different ways to make this magazine possible. We strive to be the communicative medium of your creative voices with the rest of the community. There has been no specific curatorial process to choose the people featured in this publication. Each has been a fluid journey of discovery for us. We were delighted to have so many creative people join us and be a part of this undertaking. Our purpose is to enrich the local art scene and to expose hearts and minds to the process of artistic development. You may recognize more than one of the featured artists in this publication. Their work is pictured on murals or walls around town.
