Created by Houston-based artist collaborative Havel Ruck Projects (Dan Havel and Dean Ruck), Open House gives visitors an architectural gaze of both the city’s modern skyscrapers of Downtown and surrounding landscape through holes that have been carved out of the house. The project serves as an addition to The Heritage Society’s ten historic 19th-century buildings and exhibits exploring the city’s history. The new addition fits right in with its vintage photo-lined interior filled with images sourced from family, friends and local resale shops representing the city’s people, places and past. A part of Downtown District’s Art Blocks initiative, the immersive artwork is the sixth project in this series that aims to feature world-renowned artists and designers repurposing and reenergizing under-utilized spaces through public art.
