Music on the Plaza: May 2019

Friday, May. 31, 2019 – Friday, May. 31, 2019

06:00 PM – 09:00 PM


Come out to The Brown Foundation, Inc. Plaza and enjoy creative activities driven by artist Emily Fens. Don’t miss the live music performance with indie pop band the Wild Moccasins from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Experience Fens’s work on a grand scale as it is projected on the walls of the Glassell School of Art. Dress in white to see how you can become a part of the art when you stand in front of the projections.

This three-part summer series creates synergy between different art forms and celebrates Houston’s vibrant arts scene with live music, art and performance demonstrations, and hands-on art-making experiences. Each evening also features food vendors and a cash bar.
