Street Art

Timed to coincide with the Lascaux exhibit at Houston's Museum of Natural Science, we've created a book display called Street Art. Featured are books from prehistoric times--the Lascaux cave paintings, Texas petroglyphs, Egyptian, Aegean, and African tomb, wall, and cave art--right up to modern street murals, graffiti, and even--yes--yarn bombing. 

But even more fun is the wall itself. We've covered the wall surrounding the display in paper and for the last week our customers have been contributing their own 'street' art. Come and add your own!
