This weekend the community came out to celebrate 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 hosted a free event on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10 from 12 noon to 4 p.m. 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.

Guests enjoyed live music from Houston area acoustic musicians, Joseph Rauma Duo on Saturday, music from local Americana and Country group, Charlie and the Regrets on Sunday, food carts including signature mocktails and ice cream, the Texas Bubblers with giant bubble demonstrations, a complimentary flower bar to create bouquets, sketch artists, origami lessons, and photos from a 360 degree spinning camera. Attendees also received free memorabilia and a tote bag.

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.
