Feeling restless at home and wish you could safely visit some interesting spots around Houston? A new website, HoustonMuralMap.com that launches July 15 helps people do that. “Couch-surfers can take a fun discovery tour online, by clicking on murals that interest them on the map to see a photograph and learn about the artist,” said Elia Quiles, a principal of UP Art Studio, the firm that created the site. “People can drive around to see them too, by using the website to create their own DIY tour. It’s fun to take others in your household on a drive to see some colorful murals in person.” Nearly all installations can be viewed from the car; on the street, people should wear a mask and social distance.FULL POST
