The UH Mitchell Center for the Arts is hosting an artist named Karyn Olivier who is producing this city-wide outdoor public art exhibit ON HWY BILLBOARDS. It’s a neat concept. She is replacing 13 billboard ads across Houston with life-sized photographic representations of what drivers would see if the advertising did not exist: sky, buildings, homes, trees and other elements of the environment.

Olivier’s major public art project, “Inbound: Houston,” will reveal this new view of the city Oct. 26 through Nov. 22.

Aaaahh, back to nature!
