Public Art contributes greatly to the unique and vibrant spirit in The Woodlands and surrounding areas. Collaborating with local artists, organizations and institutions, our outreach programs help enrich the cultural fabric of our community. We are always seeking out new opportunities to forge partnerships with new organizations and to develop projects within our community.

Art Bench Project

To support our mission to promote art in the community, twenty Art Benches have been commissioned and installed in The Woodlands through a partnership with The Woodlands Township. Walk from The Woodlands Mall to Town Green Park and visit Hughes Landing to enjoy the beauty and practicality of these one-of-a-kind Art Benches designed by local, national and international artists. Phase IV Art Benches are being planned for The Woodlands Waterway in the fall of 2019.

An Interactive Arts Experience - ArtFeel!

ARTFEEL is an arts appreciation initiative celebrating the vast collection of public artworks found in The Woodlands, Texas (one of the largest collections in the country!). Here’s how it works:
Quarterly, ARTFEEL spotlights a public artwork and invites residents to share their feelings with one another on The Woodlands Arts Council’s Facebook page. ARTFEEL creator and writer, Nickole Kerner Bobley, shares how the ART makes her FEEL -her “artfeel”- in a blog and shares it to help get the conversations flowing. As residents “comment” with their feelings about the art, they then share the post with their friends and soon conversations about art are moving across social media like wildfire!

Then, The Woodlands Arts Council offers up a 2-hour live show, ARTFEEL LIVE, at Market Street Green where a stage and microphone are available to residents to share how the public artwork in spotlight makes them feel - their “artfeel.” Participants get 3 minutes or less to share their feelings or impressions; some say one word while others tell a robust story or recount a special memory; some bring in their own art work that has been influenced by the piece; others improvise a poem, sing a song, play instruments, act out a scene from a film, dance and some even show-and-tell an object from their home. The rules are there are no rules - and that is the fun!


Join us to see what bubbles up when people share their feelings about art!
