Midtown Art and More

Every single form of art is represented in this community. Here’s how to enjoy a few of them.

A day of art exhibitions or performances and casual dining

Walk, bike or take the METRORail to Diverseworks. Diverseworks offers exhibitions and performances. It was founded by artists in 1982 and has earned the reputation as “a cultural agitator.” Stop into The Breakfast Klub. This is a very casual, kid-friendly Houston institution. The menu is here. Continue on to the Zoya Tommy Gallery on 4102 Fannin St. for extraordinary contemporary art. It’s open Tuesdays through Saturdays but on Mondays, it’s by appointment only.

Art walk adventure and fresh seafood

Begin your adventure at Main St. Art Projects, an alternative venue featuring local, national and international works of art located at 3617 Main St. Check it out before you get there. A few blocks away is the Samara Gallery at the intersection of Main St. and Isabella St.. Lose yourself in a wonderful selection of contemporary art. Consider stopping in next door to the Art Palace. Their featured artists have gained regional and national attention from the New York Times, Art in America, Art News and a whole lot more.

If you’re hungry, walk to Ensemble Station. Depart at the next stop at McGowen St. Walk one block and experience Reef on Travis St. at McGowen St. for lunch or dinner. Bon Appetit Magazine named Reef the #1 seafood restaurant in the U.S.
