Donkeeboy and Donkeemom created the “Bike Through H-Town” mural in partnership with Bosch eBike Systems, makers of the electric drive systems in the BCycle electric bikes available for rent at stations throughout the city, including the GreenStreet station near the mural. The mural was created as an encouraging piece for Houstonians to get outdoors, hop on a bike, and explore all the city has to offer.
Shelbi Nicole’s signature whimsical style is so representative of the joy and freedom riding a bike means for many people. Art draws you in, which is exactly what Shelbi’s design does. When you drive by GreenStreet, you’ll be intrigued by the beautiful colors on the BCycle station. But on a bike, you can get caught up in the cute swirls, polka dots and flowers of the design. The world seems brighter on a bike. This Art Station was created in partnership with Houston BCycle, GreenStreet, and Midway Creative Group.

Houston Sport’s Authority and GreenStreet unveiled it’s newest art addition in September of 2022. The mosaic fountain downtown near the House of Blues depicts the HCHSA Hall of Fame honorees in thousands of small tiles pieced together. Artist, Opie Otterstead worked on the piece many months before the unveiling ensuring every detail on each athlete represented on the fountain was perfected. The unveiling event brought together some of Houston’s iconic hall of famers, like Geroge Foreman, Clyde Drexler, and more just to see their faces on the fountain.
You can visit the fountain on your next trip to GreenStreet, right outside of House of Blues and the future Tom’s Watch Bar space!
“Hope for a greener future” is a mural that pays tribute to “affordable and clean energy.” As the 4th largest city in the United States, Houston uses a lot of power. This mural represents Houston’s dedication to alternate energy sources, and Houston commitment to move beyond fossil fuel to renewable energies. In fact, the City of Houston annually purchases more renewable energy than any other American municipality. You can hear Mayor Turner tell you more in the app Behind The Wall. This mural, created by artist Carlos Alberto and curated by Street Art for Mankind (SAM), is an ode to Houston’s flourishing ecosystems, reflecting the importance of Green Energies and their crucial role in the creation of a sustainable future in which technology works in harmony with nature. This vision includes solar panels, windmills, and modern hydroelectric wheel – thanks to this technology, clean energy and nature coexist and thrive.
You can visit this mural on the corner of Dallas and Fannin St near McCormick & Schmicks! The Greenstreet mural will come to life in actual augmented reality by the end of 2022. This outdoor museum comes to life with the app Behind The Wall, as people, with a simple scan of the mural or its picture, will have the opportunity to learn more about the inspiration behind each mural starting October 15th, 2022.
