Big, bright and colorful Houston! Life on the highway just got a lot more interesting

hearthouston“I’ve always loved large letters,” said the 86-year-old artist, whose best-known works include the giant statue of Sam Houston near Huntsville and the concrete cellist at downtown’s Lyric Centre. David Adickes goes big, bright and colorful in his latest artwork, a 30-foot-tall “We (heart) Houston” sign, now on display near Interstate 10 and Patterson.  His thought is to use artwork to welcome people into our city, which in this case the welcome mat is concrete letters ranging from 5 to 9 feet tall with the words stacked vertically, separated by a 9-foot-tall heart.

During this Fourth of July week, the sculpture is being built on the artist’s own property.  A formal dedication with Mayor Annise Parker and other dignitaries is scheduled for July 12.
