Come join the free community celebration of one of the largest outdoor murals in Texas, the new 35,000-square-foot mural, Flowers, created by renowned contemporary artist Alex Katz. The Howard Hughes Corporation hosts the free weekend celebration on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10 from 12 Noon -4 PM at the new 2.3-acre outdoor gathering space, also marking its debut, located at 1 Waterway Square across from The Westin, in The Woodlands.

The mural celebration will be held in conjunction with The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival, named one of the top art festivals in the country, taking place April 9  & 10 from 10 AM – 6 PM.

Alex Katz’s mural, titled Flowers, 2022, is hand-painted on a 358 x 105-foot wall on the south side of The Woodlands Waterway Square garage. The mural transforms the northeast corner of Waterway Square, engaging the last remaining inactive streetscape within the one-acre downtown public plaza that serves as a vibrant, walkable urban core in The Woodlands Town Center.

Parking for the celebration and for The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival is free at Waterway Square Garage, courtesy of The Howard Hughes Corporation.
