Across fifty-five acres of once-abandoned industrial concrete, Sawyer Yards has sprouted as Houston’s artsy playground. Now this collection of studios, galleries, murals, and boutiques represents the city’s finest creative talent. The community has resulted in unexpected ventures like Workspace, a literary arts organization hoping to provide MFA-quality creative writing classes to writers who cannot afford to earn a degree. Or RacePace, an instructor-led running class, equipped with treadmills and usually packed with marathon runners hoping to improve their performance. Plan to come for Open Studios, held on the second Saturday of every month in the Silos, when artists open their studios to the public. Grab a beer on tap from Holler Brewing Co., mingle with the crowd, and introduce yourself to the artists displaying their work.
