Yet another piece by local artist David Adickes.
"The Virtuoso", located in front of downtown's Lyric Center, was previously shown HERE, but these three are actually displayed behind the larger sculpture.

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is back in town and this past weekend was the annual BBQ cook-off.
While I was unable to attend this is Eric Kaposta’s “Cookie” located in Carruth Plaza on the rodeo grounds at Reliant Park.

Five years ago a mural just like this one adorned the side of Mary’s Bar located near the intersection of Montrose and Westheimer. Eventually, it was painted over and last June it was recreated just prior to Houston’s Pride Parade.
I took this photo a month ago, and now… unfortunately it has been painted over again with the promise from its artists that it will “eventually” show up in another location soon.

Acting as part guardrail, part community enhancement, these colorful orbs protect a curve just before you enter the parking lot of the Baker-Ripley Neighborhood Center.
Located on the city’s southwest side, the center provides a safe and friendly atmosphere for local residents to learn new things and an opportunity for them to participate in community activities.

Now vacant, but still visible from the Gulf Freeway has you drive north towards downtown is this mural that was created in the fall of 2000 by art students from George Sanchez High School in the fall of 2000. Using the back wall of a now vacant distribution center, the project was funded in part by a grant from the Cultural Art Council of Houston and Harris County.

Not sure what this glass paneled structure is or what purpose it serves, but what I do know is that is stands within the Facilities Operations Compound on the campus of Rice University.
Is it a piece of public art?
Maybe a collection panel for solar power?
It very well could just be something that tortures the occasional curious passerby, and in that case… it worked!!
