The Color of Queso

Conceived in partnership with James Glassman, a new pop-up gallery at River Oaks District speaks to the landmarks, people and culture of Houston.

Menil gray. Beyonce yellow. Rocket engine red. Azalea Trail fuchsia.
 
For more colors of Houston, make tracks to the clever new art pop-up at River Oaks District. Riffing on Pantone colors, Huestone invites you to pose inside four vignettes that speak to our city. Consider NASA blue, Astroturf green, Wes Anderson pink (the filmmaker grew up here), and pastels inspired by historic Victorian homes in the Heights. The color swatched wall studies the shade of cowboy boots, green sauce, medical scrubs, oil and even the pollen that covers our cars. Throughout the shopping center, sidewalk squares are painted in the same 29 hues.
 
Welcome to the orange show.

Through Sept. 20. Mon-Sat, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. Sun, 12 p.m. - 5 p.m. Closed daily 2-2:30 p.m. for cleaning. Masks required.
